The AB Guide to Music Theory: Part I by Eric TaylorWhen this first arrived, I opened this pink, manly book, a smell of raw lamb wafted into my nose.
I was like: WTH, I THOUGHT THIS WAS A MUSIC BOOK OF CAMBRIDGE KNOWLEDGE NOT A HOW TO BBQ BOOK BY MOOOOOZART!
Then, after reading through the foreword by Eric Taylor himself, I looked at the content page and I dont know what happened to me after that.....
5hrs later, I finished reading the first few chapters. I am a slow reader that is. Hence 5hrs. It is sooo addictive to read. The diagrams are well presented in any manner.
However, the language of the book is quite old fashioned and formal. I would not recomend this theory guide to children under the age of 11, but I DONT THINK THIS A PROBLEM since kids are getting smarter every year right?
And for just around 3 dollars, this is the best Music bang for the buck!
Oh and all those Italian jargen are in there aussi.
Grade for theory recommendations: 1-6
WAIT! THERES A PART 2 AS WELL BY ERIC TAYLOR(BOOK)
