Guitar Harmony (Guitar Theory)
Guitar Harmony, by Alan Hirsh, is one of the best guitar theory books (with ear training), progressively organized in 10 units— Scales/Intervals, Triads, Major, Minor, Chord Progressions, Chord Voicings, Seventh Chords, Cadence and Phrases, Secondary Chords, Non-Chord Tones, and Harmonizing Melody. All concepts presented in clear and simple terms are applied directly on the guitar with musical examples taken from Sor, Caracssi, Carulli, and others. The end of the book includes three complete etudes by Sor for harmonic analysis. Guitar Harmony includes an expanded online supplement with 9 Aural Training Modules, fingerboard Interval/Triad, Seventh Chord trainers, and Rhythm and Melody trainers for guitar-oriented melodic and harmonic dictation.
Guitar Harmony is designed for use in either private lessons or the classroom (Teacher’s manual is available) to compliment any guitar study.
