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? In these series of essays from his website Hooks and Harmony (http://hooksandharmony.com), author Peter Lee laments the lack of originality in today's music, reminisces about how music and memory are forever linked, and recounts some of the overlooked bands of the last few years.

Garage Band Theory – GBTool 13 Arpeggios: excerpt from Garage Band Theory - Tools the Pro's Use to Play by Ear

by Duke Sharp

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.

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 09 Melody Harmony Scales & Chords: excerpt from Garage Band Theory: Tools the Pros Use to Play by Ear (Garage Band Theory - Tools the Pro's Use to Play by Ear Book 10)

by Duke Sharp

Everything in this book came from Garage Band Theory and there's loads more useful stuff there.

Here we'll take a look at how all these items and ideas fit together and how you can use them to play songs by ear.

It's gonna require a decent working knowledge of most of the vocabulary that's found in the previous chapters, but if you're already speaking music, you won't have any trouble here.

I think that people who play exclusively by ear understand this stuff intuitively and it certainly looks and sounds like pure magic when they're doing it.

But for the rest of us, it's really helpful to go through it slowly, look at the illustrations and examples and you'll start seeing the relationships right away.
