Garage Band Theory - Tools the Pro's Use to Play by Ear
Music Theory-learn to Read & Play by Ear, Tab & Notation for Guitar, Mandolin, Banjo, UkuleleeBook - 2016
This is non-academic, practical, useful theory for living-room pickers and working musicians who want to be able to think coherently about music in order to ask questions and understand answers about the music they want to play. The stuff in GBT is about understanding The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, Cole Porter and Duke Ellington, The Grateful Dead and Vampire Weekend. It's NOT about analyzing Bach Fugues... but you'll be able to if you want to. It was written for the 99% of musicians who are NOT music majors by a incorrigible honky-tonk guitar player who plays by ear... but understands the relevant vocabulary and what's sensible and useful for MOST players. No matter which instrument you want to play, the advice, inspiration and down-to-earth tips in this book will help you get to your goal. Duke Sharp draws on a lifetime of experience playing, writing, recording and teaching music. Garage Band Theory demystifies music theory and, in the process, shows how to apply basic music theory to the art of playing by ear and composition.
