chord connect system Chord Connect
This is our chord connecting learning system. We link a new chord to a known chord. The exact way to make the transitions happen is discussed in detail. By programming motion between chords with precision, we don't train mistakes. This system has 2 paths. Path I is super simple. Path II is a bit more challenging. This learning module provides all of the essential and basic chords to get you playing songs. There is a switch point for programming motion where you can make any change. Go
