Why Music Matters: A Series of Essays on the State of Popular Music Today (Hooks and Harmony Book 1)

by Peter Lee

What's wrong with today's music? What was so good about the music of previous generations? And how do we try to relay the meaning of melody, harmony, and just plain good music to our kids?

Modernizing Composition: Sinhala Song, Poetry, and Politics in Twentieth-Century Sri Lanka (South Asia Across the Disciplines)

by Garrett Field

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more.   The study of South Asian music falls under the purview of ethnomusicology, whereas that of South Asian literature falls under South Asian studies. As a consequence of this academic separation, scholars rarely take notice of connections between South Asian song and poetry. Modernizing Composition overcomes this disciplinary fragmentation by examining the history of Sinhala-language song and poetry in twentieth-century Sri Lanka. Garrett Field describes how songwriters and poets modernized song and poetry in response to colonial and postcolonial formations. The story of this modernization is significant in that it shi...

Holy Hip Hop in the City of Angels (Music of the African Diaspora Book 19)

by Christina Zanfagna

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program for monographs. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more.   In the 1990s, Los Angeles was home to numerous radical social and environmental eruptions. In the face of several major earthquakes and floods, riots and economic insecurity, police brutality and mass incarceration, some young black Angelenos turned to holy hip hop—a movement merging Christianity and hip hop culture—to “save” themselves and the city. Converting street corners to open-air churches and gangsta rap beats into anthems of praise, holy hip hoppers used gospel rap to navigate complicated social and spiritual realities and to transform the Southland’s fractured terrains into musical ...

Garage Band Theory – GBTool 15 Bending Bach and Beethoven: Music theory for non music majors, livingroom pickers and working musicians who want to think ... Tools the Pro's Use to Play by Ear Bo

by Duke Sharp

JS Bach composed over 1100 works that we're sure of before his death at 65 in 1750.

Ludwig van Beethoven started to lose his hearing in his mid-twenties, yet composed nearly 800 works before his death at 57 in 1827.

I suspect that there are very few composers alive today who will be remembered two hundred years from now with such reverence and respect as these two.

The two Bach pieces are on my regular set list, but I don't play either one exactly the way Mr. Bach would. So while you'll find correct transcriptions of both, with tab for guitar, you'll also find a couple of different ways to approach these two classics and they're tabbed for mandolin as well as guitar.

These are really fun to play as guitar/mando duets, and there's a ver...

Willpower: Growth Mindset and Mind Discipline to reach your Personal Success

by Lewis Fischer

Are you the master of your Mind? Success is about your mindset and about the discipline you have to put your inspiration into motion. It’s not just about how much you work, or how much you delegate. Sure, things happen when you put your nose to the grindstone, but much of your success depends on the mindset that stands behind the desire to succeed. That mindset needs to cover a wide area. From the necessary mindset to sculpt personal disciplines, to having a mindset of subscribing to optimal thought patterns.Success, as easy as it may seem from the bleachers, is a complex symphony of skills that work together within the body mind and spirit to yield output that forms the basis of your contribution to this world. Each person’s contribution is unique, but each person’s source of inspir...

On the Cantatas of J.S. Bach: Trinity VIII-XVI (The Bach Cantatas Book 2)

by Hendrik Slegtenhorst

Bach the composer, like many of us today, contends with fundamental human concerns such as self-worth, the courage of trust, the acceptance of death, satisfaction with life, the hope found in joy, suffering amidst the essential beauty of the world, the misery of loss, and the majesty of redemption.Trinity VIII through XVI, the second third of the Trinity Sundays and feast days, occurs in late July to early October in the Lutheran liturgical year. The nine topics of the human condition that these Trinity cantatas principally dwell upon encompass (1) mortal hypocrisy, (2) spiritual weakness and failure (3) the destruction of man’s innate divinity, (4) defeating unworthiness, (5) the covenant of life, (6) the golden rule, (7) the source of love, (8) mastering troubles, and (9) the alliance ...

Middlebrow Modernism: Britten’s Operas and the Great Divide (California Studies in 20th-Century Music Book 24)

by Christopher Chowrimootoo

At publication date, a free ebook version of this title will be available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. Situated at the intersections of twentieth-century music history, historiography, and aesthetics, Middlebrow Modernism uses Benjamin Britten’s operas to illustrate the ways in which composers, critics, and audiences mediated the “great divide” between modernism and mass culture. Reviving mid-century discussions of the middlebrow, Christopher Chowrimootoo demonstrates how Britten’s works allowed audiences to have their modernist cake and eat it: to revel in the pleasures of consonance, lyricism, and theatrical spectacle even while enjoying the prestige that came from rejecting them.

Garage Band Theory - GBTool 04 Scales: Music theory for non music majors. Practical theory for livingroom pickers and working musicians who want to think ... Tools the Pro's Use to Play by Ear Book 5)

by Duke Sharp

Why would anyone practice scales? When you could wash windows or scrub walls or visit the dentist instead?

It's partly for the same reason athletes work out... to be quicker, more flexible, develop stamina.

When an athlete is in good condition everything is easier. And daily exercise keeps them in shape for whatever the game happens to be at the moment, whether it's basketball, rugby or water polo, they're probably gonna be able to find a spot and contribute.

Same thing goes for musicians. Jazz, bluegrass, rock or reggae, when you don't have to overcome physical obstacles, you can play it all.

It really works. It doesn't happen overnight. Or even in a month. But it works.

Basic major scale practice may also be the best e...

BC Guitar

by Samuel Larson

Welcome to Beginning Contemporary Guitar, As a teacher, I've observed that new students vary widely in age and past experience. Some students have played an instrument and have learned to read music but are new to the guitar. Others may have some experience with the guitar but no formal training in the language of music. And some students have never played a musical instrument. No matter which background applies to you, if you're taking this course, then you've decided to start from the beginning to develop a solid foundation with both the guitar and reading music. The materials list for this course has three required elements:1) You'll need a six string acoustic or electric guitar, 2) A medium gauge guitar plectrum (guitar pick), 3) And a computer, laptop, or handheld electronic device...

Garage Band Theory – GBTool 12 Intro to Scales: Music theory for non music majors, livingroom pickers and working musicians who want to think & speak coherently ... Tools the Pro's Use to Pl

by Duke Sharp

Introduction to Scales for Guitar and Mandolin
(it's really pretty easy and worth the trouble)

Everything in this book came from Garage Band Theory and there's loads more there.
Just about every musician has at some point thought that they should probably learn some scales and practice them.

But almost no one ever does.

I think that's partly because it's not clear WHY.

There's at least two excellent reasons to practice scales.

The obvious one is that it's good for coordination with both hands. The goal is to remove the physical obstacles that might impede a musical idea from materializing.

It doesn't take long with any of these forms before you're able to play them with your eyes closed ... and that...

By 1887 more than half a million young people were studying the piano. The immense interest in piano music generated a need for sheet music of the most popular songs of the time, and by 1910, thirty million sheet music copies were being sold every year. At the same time, advances in printing technology allowed publishers to print high-quality art images on their sheet music covers, which acted as an advertisement for the sheet music.
