Now available as a home-printable wall-chart and chord book, Roedy Black's Complete Keyboard Chord Poster is the world's only chart of every keyboard chord. This 93-page PDF consists mainly of images. It contains two sizes of the Complete Keyboard Chord Poster. Size "A" (Regular Size) is 38" (98 cm) wide x 27" (68 cm) high. Size "B" (Megasize) is 58" (146 cm) wide x 40" (102 cm) high. You can view these two images on your screen at these large sizes. You can also print out the full Complete Keyboard Chord Poster in sections on ordinary 8 1/2" by 11" paper, then three-hole punch the pages. Then you can put the pages in a small binder and use it as a "complete keyboard chord book." Each page has a "mini-map" at the top, showing you its poster location, much like the pages of a map book or road atlas. Alternatively (or in addition), you can print out the entire Complete Keyboard Chord Poster in sections on 8 1/2" by 11" paper and trim off the white space around the four edges of each image on each page, using scissors or a straight-edge and paper cutter (similar to a box cutter, but smaller and lighter). You can then assemble the sections into a large wall chart (you have two sizes to choose from). A wall chart gives you access to all keyboard chords in all keys at a glance. This has some distinct advantages: You can keep both hands on your keyboard while learning new chords or progressions. You don't have to stop to flip through pages. This makes chord-learning faster and easier. By seeing all the chords logically arranged, key by key, you'll find it a lot easier to get the "big picture," to recognize and understand musical relationships. The wall chart enables you to see, clearly and easily, how simple 3-note chords gradually extend into various types of 7th, 9th, 11th, 13th, and other chords. Also, you can relate the information on the Chord Progression Chart (at the end of the eBook) to the chords on the wall poster, enabling a better understanding of how chord progressions work.
