Question by Vince: What is the best guitar book about learning chords and stuff like that?
i’ve been playing guitar for about a year and i want to learn how chords are created or a book with alot of different chord charts in it and more, does anyone have a suggestion for the best book for that on the market?

You don’t really need a book for that. All the chords, chord positions and variations/inversions are available online for free. Just go to http://www.all-guitar-chords.com/
You first pick the chord from the boxes on the right (underneath the neck). Then you can hit the ‘variations’ button to find the alternative positions. You will immediately see how to play the chord/s on the neck.
You will see what scales/modes the chord you have chosen is associated with. There is also a lot of lessons about theory which should answer most of your questions.
Your best option (apart from costly private tuition) is to get one of the better online courses out there. I tend to prefer Guitar Superstars: http://learnelectricguitarnow.net/guitar-superstars – a really good and comprehensive resource.
