Inside this month’s magazine
This month, we show you how to bust out of the open and barre chord rut with our guide to learning more chords, but just as - perhaps even more - importantly, how to use them. Our cover feature breaks down the theory of extended chords, and by the end of it you'll know how they work, and how to get them working in your own progressions.
