Sensational New Music Book for 2015 Back in the 60as I toured Europe extensively as a musician and during this time I worked with several world class guitarists - superb musicians. But one thing that they all had in common was that none of them could read music. Ironically, I could read music having had a fairly extensive classical training, yet these guys were teaching me stuff that Iad never heard of. Since those times Iave written a few books on keyboard tuition, mainly geared around learning to read music and playing techniques. But then I got thinking; during my time as a touring soul / funk / prog rock musician, although I could read music, I never actually needed to. When I first joined one particular backing band I was presented with some chord lines to follow, but thatas as close as it ever got. So I can emphatically say that learning to read music wonat improve your technical playing ability one iota! How can it? - one is theory, the other practice! So learning to read music is a total waste of time then? No, actually I think itas a very good idea. Iam just saying it wonat improve your playing technique. It will help you copy other people and in some cases this can help you learn. But ultimately copying other people is not what itas all about; - great musicians create! In this book youall find superb exercises to give you a great technique as well as all the theoretical information that you need - all without reading music.
