    Default Public domain music theory books

    I don't have any extra money atm, so could you recommend me some public domain music theory books, mainly about harmony because my knowledge of harmony is a disgrace for me.

    Thanks in advance

    Do you love Ludwig Van Beethovens music?
    Does his life-story/music inspire you?
    Can you strongly relate to the emotions on his music?


    If you answered positively to all those questions, we have just found the right place for you!

    I would really strongly advise against using any harmony book in the public domain. The field of music theory has radically changed since 1923...

    This is an illustrated music theory teaching guide written by a professor at my son's college.

    Starts out with very basic music theory and gets into what I think you are looking for near the middle of the series. I think it is easy to understand.
