Hi all, have been playing for quite some time and i was wondering.
ive studied music theory both classical and more modern concepts, i decided i wanted to know as much as i could but im having trouble sourcing information.
my technique is what ive been working on mainly but now that i have built up a fairly solid technique im looking to expand my theory knowledge, mainly in the fields of chordal and scalar studies.
is there a book that tackles just one of these elements and teaches from begginer to very advanced?
ive been looking for a book on chords (not just a book on all the different types but one that goes in depth with theory and explinations)
and a book on scales, just like the book on chords, one that describes not just the scales but all the relevant theory associated with it, from how there constructed to what progresions they can be used over and why, etc etc.
ive found it very difficult to find a book that will focus on what i just desrcibed, there are alot of what i call dictionarys, that just show you the scaled, but that would not help me, i can learn where the notes are but i want a book that explains the why's and how's and when's not just the scale/chord itself
would also help if it was applied to guitar rather than piano or other instruments.
anyone got any ideas as to where to find these "dream" books i seek
