Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

From humble beginnings in murky, Liverpool clubs in the early sixties, four songwriters emerged who would change the course of popular music forever: The Beatles. Within only a decade they created an arsenal of songs which set the template for all popular music that followed, and, over half a century later, their music still beats with the same vitality, pangs with the same melancholy and grips with the same fervour.

How is this possible? What mystical components were fused to create these extraordinary emotions? Why are they still so influential today?

The Songwriting Secrets of The Beatles sets out to answer these questions. Chord sequences, melodies, harmonies, rhythms and structures are all examined in a clear and readable style, unlocking the musical secrets within - not just for advanced musicians, but anyone who has ever felt the power of these songs for themselves.

Printed music and lyrics feature within the text and in this Omnibus Enhanced digital edition, audio tracks accompany many of these examples, allowing rhythms, melodies and instrumentations to jump directly out from the pages.

The Songwriting Secrets of The Beatles is essential for any musician who has marvelled at The Beatles creative intelligence; a new and perceptive analysis of both the most enduring and captivating songs of our age.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Here's your music theory textbook 21 juillet 2013
Par John Kleinjans - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I bought the hardcover version of this book a few years ago, and now I bought it for my Kindle, because (1) the hardcover is large, and I want to carry it with me, and (2) I'm getting older, and my eyesight is not so good, so I can enlarge the font size on the Kindle.

That said, I've been enjoying and learning from this book for years. I've started at the beginning and read my way into this book several times, and each time I understand more and get farther in. I don NOT have any previous education or training in music theory, but I have been trying to learn through the years, and this book helps make sense of the music and the theory.

I've been arranging and playing Beatles tunes on guitar (and now ukulele) for over 40 years now, and while I can put together chords and melodies, and play them, I still wonder how they came up with many of those chord changes and progressions, the key changes ... like, where did this come from? How does that make sense? This book helps piece it all together.

The book is well organized for people like me. It starts with the simple things (the V to I chord progression, the three-chord trick) and moves slowly forward and upward in complexity, taking one step (one chapter) at a time. There's a bunch of appendices, including the first one explaining some basics of music theory, maybe the best short explanation I've read anywhere.

And it puts all these ideas in the context of music that I already know, so I can hear the examples of the theoretical points being made. The power of this book come from the interplay of the theory and the music, where the author uses each to explain the other. So you can think of this as a book using music theory to explain the Beatles' music, or as a book using the Beatles' music to illustrate music theory.

Of course, Lennon and McCartney and Harrison didn't think about the music that they wrote and played in terms of the music theory presented in this book. Many of the "new" ideas that they brought to their songwriting were actually known tricks, bits and pieces that they took from their early repertoire of covers, and then mixed and matched into new combinations. An important part of their artistry was their ability to find which combinations "worked". This book brings that out, crediting the early pioneers pop and rock-n-roll, and also showing what the Beatles took from those early hits and how they fit those bits together.

Besides the well-thought-out sequential organization of this book (going from simpler to more complex), the writing is well paced and accessible. Mr Pedlar doesn't drag points out overly long, nor does he rush through material or make sudden jumps. Given that the ideas and language of music theory are not particularly intuitive, his writing pace is comfortable and understandable.

I have to read some parts several times to understand them, because I first have to understand the pieces, and then I have to understand the relationships between those pieces. That's what learning is about. I don't already know this stuff.

So if you want to learn and understand music theory, and you're interested in learning and understanding the music of the Beatles, this is The Book.

Read it. Study it. Enjoy it. Use it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Staggering Achievement 13 novembre 2014
Par James Abraham - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book is to Beatles books, or music theory books, as the Beatles were to music -- so high above the rest it is staggering. This is the greatest introduction to music theory ever written, and should be used as the basic text in the training of every musician. If you ever wanted to know just why that Beatles tune you can't get out of your head is so great, you'll find the answer here.

It's really a thorough introduction to music theory, using Beatles songs as the musical examples. This is a real bonus -- ordinarily in music theory texts, you have to run to the piano to try the chord progression they're talking about. But if you know the Beatles' songs really well, you'll have those tunes and chords in your head.

No more does music theory have to be this boring interlude between all your fun musical adventures. This book shows you how the Beatles sounded so good. If you have any yen for songwriting or musical composition, you should start here.

Even more than Duke Ellington, the music of the Beatles is the greatest accomplishment in popular music, and will be ranked with Bach, Beethoven, Shakespeare, and Tolstoy a hundred years from now. And this book should be right there next to it, explaining it all.

I'd give 6 out of 5 stars if I could. It was worth having shipped from the UK to US.

I've played guitar for 25+ years and have read many, many books on "applied" music theory. For me, the greatest challenge in other texts is "hearing" the numerical chord changes in my head. While I understand these concepts and musical transitions from a learned-by-ear approach, I was never one that could say, "that's the iv-chord moving to the I-chord to the V7-chord."

The Beatles catalog is so well known, it provides examples of all the numerical chord changes in famous, well-know Beatles songs. This makes learning the concepts much easier since there are famous examples that can easily be sung along to (mentally), while examining the explanation.

Easy to read, great presentation, amazing information. Beyond the technical music theory I'm learning, I continue to be truly amazed at the Beatles ability to learn a "tool" and apply it in musical perfection.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The best book available on the music of the Beatles 30 juillet 2014
Par Mockingbird - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is an outstanding achievement. The author explains what makes the Beatles songs so good and so enduring in language that can be understood by a variety of audiences. If you have a basic knowledge of music theory, it will be challenging at points, but very understandable. If you don't, the seven appendices will tell you everything you need to know. The author has an extensive knowledge and a deep recognition of all aspects of the music, but the language is not pedantic or condescending. If you want to know the differences between Lennon and McCartney (not the cultural cliches, but the actual musical differences) this book will tell you with a deep appreciation of both, without extraneous nonsense. He likes Oasis a little too much, and there is more here about the opening chord of "A Hard Day's Night" then you could ever possibly want to know, but his illustration of the Beatles' achievements, inventions, and genius is unmatched.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Learning Music Theory 16 août 2013
Par Steve G. Johnson - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I've always thought music theory was too technical for me. This book is tough for someone without some theory background (like myself) but not impossible. I enjoy the Beatles music so that makes me more open to trying to understand the theory concepts and I am enjoying what I am learning. Basically, it is sound translated into math and numbers and if you approach it that way it makes sense. For me it comes down to reading a few pages at a time, listening to the songs, re-reading the pages again, etc. until I get it. But I have already picked up so much and my ears can now hear and understand what is going on. It is demanding and fulfilling. I've forged through about 15 to 20 pages a week but I understand everything I've read so far and I can now hear things in the music that I was unaware of before. It is fascinating and you will appreciate the Beatles so much more as you begin to understand how their songs were developed. This book is "heavy" and is for someone who is willing to put time and effort into the process but it is also giving me musical insight and understanding that just blows me away. It is some serious stuff!
