Then you pop in the cd and listen to no less than "20" beautifully recorded pop tracks(sans vocals) written in various styles which apply the book's teachings. But you aren't just listening. You're following along with the cd section of the book, which shows every chord used and an accounting of every measure in every track recorded, along with comments on the most significant events.
I came away with a much greater appreciation of popular song and its potential.
This book uses I, IV, V chord type of notation, with the note (like G, F, etc.) written underneath it. I use keyboard and not guitar so the basic chords were fine but some of the notation was a bit more geared for guitar (I think guitar tends to use G where as keyboard is oriented at middle C). Possibly it would have been clearer if they'd had a version of the book geared specifically for keyboard.
But none-the-less, this book has been a godsend. I'd been looking for a book like this for a long time, one that explicitly shows you the techniques that popular music has been using for years, techniques that someone like me, who does not come from a musical background, can try out and run with.
Again, if you have questions like, what is harmony, what is a relative minor/major, you may want to find out the basics first, but once you know a tiny bit about chords, this book could very well give you a new "aha!" every time you study from it.
