Musical theory

Post by Vito Corleone » Fri Apr 28, 2006 10:34 am

Alright well im on my way to having built a basic starter studio..

Now i want to know if there are any books out there which will teach me how to read/correctly play music.

I mean, i dont just want to bash out random tunes on a midi controller, hoping something will loop! want to be able to work out a melody, learn correct song structure etc etc etc. surely theres gotta be some sort of book?

That's where I learned the basics. You don't need to spend money on anything if you want to learn the basics. There are scales and basic chords to learn and then develop your own from them.
I never actually bothered learning how to read music, until a year ago when I bought my sax.
Its very easy to learn how to read music.

no need to delete this thread - has some good linkage on it!
