durable plastic cover
It’s about time! David Winkler has written a wonderful guide for keyboard and other rhythm section players to use in learning to interpret chord symbols. There is so much music in the church today that requires reading
this kind of notation, and there is no one better to write this book than David Winkler. He has the knowledge and the experience to create a text that anyone can read and use. Congratulations, David, on a job well done!
