Hands-On Music Theory by Richard Wentk
If you're like many musicians, composers, and songwriters, you've probably tried to learn music theory in the past – but you've been put off by stuffy books filled with archaic concepts and fossilized instruction methods. It's time for a fresh approach. In Hands-on Music Theory, you'll learn practical, contemporary music in contemporary terms – without all the nostalgia for classical methods that are hundreds of years old. Written in friendly, easy-to-understand language, and illustrated with examples that draw on modern tools such as keyboard and fretboard diagrams, this book offers practical, hands-on, easy-to-grasp instruction on key points of modern pop, rock, jazz, and electronic music theory. Throughout, you'll find the instruction aided by familiar musical references, and URLs where you can check out examples online. As author Richard Wentk promises in the book's introduction, you will learn to "think creatively about your own music and get a better feel for the details that matter when writing, arranging, and producing.” Learn today's music theory in today's language, with Hands-On Music Theory.
Guitar Theory (Idiot's Guides) by David Hodge
Idiot's Guides: Guitar Theory is music theory for guitar and other fretboard instruments. Beginning with very simple and clear explanations, the book defines notes, their names, relationships, and guitar tablature and then explains rhythm, keeping time, and strumming. The book then goes into depth on the major scale and the four basic chords, to make guitar theory very clear and keep it easy, before going into all the chords and scales. The last part of the book covers playing solo and with others. There is more than an hour of listen- and follow-along audio files online with all of the music in the book and more.
