276 Guitar Chords - Essential Reference
A nice story about chords scales and feelings:
Once Andres Segovia was sitting in silent as he watched Django Reinhardt improvise on some famous standard jazz tunes; he was so impressed that he asked Django where he could get the sheet music for those awesome tunes he had just played. Django is said to have replied "Oh I have never played from a piece of sheet music in my life, I just improvise".
I don't know if this conversation really happened, but it is a nice story of two great guitar players that will be remembered forever. To make this long story short, as Metallica would say, "eat, sleep, play guitar. Nothing else matters!"
