I'm talking about all the same chords used to play practically every popular song out there! Theones you grew up listening to... the songs you now enjoy... classic holiday tunes... even yourkids' favorite songs... and more!

What if you could learn all the chords that makeup those songs in just an hour or so? Would you be excited? 

My good friend Jermaine Griggs over at Hearand Play Music is going to reveal an approachthat allows you to learn anywhere: at your piano,in your car, on your ipod® while at the gym ---ANYWHERE!
