I am not a beginner musician, somewhere in the upper intermediate range. Caution: The book is not for the beginner. One needs to understand, to get through it, the various keys, scales, 7th chords, II V Is and more, etc, which most people that have played or taken lessons for 2-3 years probably do.
Then, this book does a fantastic job explaining how the various chords (dominant, for example) can be tweaked to make them more interesting and what substitutions work and which ones don't. Ditto for progressions and minor keys, etc. The flow of what and especially WHY is very clearly described, unlike most other books.
I don't write many reviews, but this one is so well written, I think others should know . . .
CST was so eloquently writen, sort of like an exercise in reading coprehension. It's a great book, but you realy have to read between the lines, over and over again.
This new book is a real joy to read and easy to understand, yet much more evolved and expanded.
The language is clear and the explanations are far deeper so you won't be left with unanswered questions.
Btw, this is a theory text, Im not sure why the reviewer above me said it was practice orientated.
I also bought the "Chord / Scales theory" and globally, both books treat the same questions, I couldn't say this one brings vital new information in comparison.
There are probably better, more logical ways to structure some parts of this book to make it more understandable but on the other hand, the author keeps it short which is a good thing.
All in all, i would definitely recommend this book if you're interested in Berklee's harmony teaching but maybe another book would better fit your needs as a first book.
