Mel Bay Basic Music Theory for Bnjo Players Book/Online Audio & Video

  • £17.99

This book is a "hands-on" approach to music theory with lots of playing examples for the Banjo. Music theory does not have to be mysterious or difficult. In fact, taken a little bit at a time, it’s easy and fun! Each of the approximately 50 lessons in this book has a limited scope, but by the time you complete them, you will have a thorough understanding of the basics of music theory as applied to the Banjo.

Description

 While a single book can't cover everything in so vast a subject, the author has tried to choose topics that will address the needs of most beginning Banjo players. These include: scale theory, reading tablature and standard notation, key signatures, accidentals, transposition, time signatures and note values, intervals and chord construction, the three kinds of minor scales, pentatonic scales, and more. In addition, each chapter features playing examples and review questions to both test and clarify understanding of the materials presented.

Rather than proceeding from chapter to chapter, as each individual Banjo player is likely at a different point in their musical journey, the reader is encouraged to “jump around and spend more time in those areas that interest you most.” The important thing about the journey is to begin.

Includes access to online audio and video.

The repertoire, presented in tablature, is intended to be a starting point for your journey through the old time music world. As such, each piece is presented in multiple arrangements, both on the page and on the accompanying audio CD.
