    Default Book Review

    All,
    I am considering purchasing, "The Musicians Guide to Theory and Analysis" and was wondering if anyone else has read it and what they think of it.
    Thanks,

    My son needs a drainage ditch dug to stop water run-off in his front yard. So, I made an agreement with him that if he and I work together he would have to buy the "The Musicians Guide to Theory and Analysis" book and workbook as payment for my effort, which is the reason I asked if anyone had any thoughts on the book.
    I did not see it listed in the Music Books - A Quick Reference section on this forum.

    See Best way of learning harmony? especially post 7 which refers to your book.
    Music begins where words leave off. Music expresses the inexpressible.

    Thanks. We all need someone to keep us in line, correct?
    Maybe that is one of the reasons we get married.
