Writing About Music: A Style Sheet, 3rd edition
Where do you place the hyphen in "Beethoven" if it breaks between two lines? How do you cite John Coltrane's album A Love Supreme? Is it "premiere" or "premiere"? The answers and much more can be found in this definitive resource for authors, students, editors, concert producers - anyone who deals with music in print. Extending the principles devised for the classical repertoires, this revised and expanded edition now includes examples from world music, rock, jazz, popular music, and cinema.

This essential volume covers some of the thorniest issues of musical discourse: how to go about describing musical works and procedures in prose, the rules for citations in notes and bibliography, and proper preparation of such materials as musical examples, tables, and illustrations. One section discusses program notes, while others explain the requirements for submitting manuscripts and electronic files, and outline best practices for student writers. An appendix lists common problem words. Updates include greatly simplified citations of Internet locators, the recognition of multiple platforms, and the expectation of paperless transmission and storage of work. Cited as the authority by The Chicago Manual of Style, this classic handbook is the go-to source for anyone writing about music.

If you want to understand music theory without the usual 
headache, this book is for you. 

I explain all the details and define every term. 

Most importantly, I build to the big picture piece by piece so you can see why music is structured the way it is. 

I'll show you practical patterns within this structure that can immediately be applied to your playing.

Knowledge like this improves every aspect of your guitar practice because it provides a new, clear lens to view your study through. 

I speak from personal experience when I say the guitar can be a confusing and frustrating instrument. 

I couldn't play music to save my life for years. 

Eventually I forced myself to read and practice so much that I came to understand how the guitar works. 
I got to that fluid state where playing is pure bliss 

I don't want you to have to force yourself, like I did. 
I want it to be easy for you to learn to play. 

The circle of 5ths is an extremely powerful musical tool– if you know how to use it. 

Inside, I'll show you exactly that. 

All the best, 
Scott J. Harris
