"Music Theory in the Real World
A Practical Guide for Today's Musicians"
In this book Mike Perlowin
combines the practical experience of being a working musician in the
fields of rock, blues, country, R&B, reggae, and bluegrass with
the theoretical knowledge of an academic backround to explain music
theory in terms that any moderately accomplished musician can understand.
Starting with the most basic of lessons, Perlowin clearly and concisely
explains the tonal relationships between notes and how they form different
types of scales and chords. Instead of using examples from unfamiliar
classical music, this book uses well known tunes like Mary had a Little
Lamb or Silent Night to illustrate theoretical principles. Rather than
offering information on how to play a specific instrument, this book
is designed for people who already play proficiently but don't understand
music's underlying theoretical principles. Although the book is relatively
short, it contains the equivalent of a year's worth of college level
material, all made accessible to the average musician desiring a better
understanding of music theory.
