    Thanks for a great tutorial on the demented chords. I’m actually a beginning keyboardist, wouln’t even know which way round to hold a guitar but found this extremely enlightening. I’m excited to read some of your other articles that I’ve cued up.

    I’m a longtime cowboy chord rhythm guitarist, started studying jazz 3-4 years ago. This article really helped me understand the Aug and dim concepts. Gotta run now, but I’ll be back to study some more. Thanks so much for this valuable resource.
