    Almost perfect

    Props to the authors for a very easy to follow explanation of the basics of chord progressions. The text and graphics and audio make it very engaging. I only have two gripes. First there are some parts of the text that are very difficult to see (particularly some of the subscripts for inversions) and some of the graphical representations of notes. Some parts of the text can be zoomed but others cannot. Second, I was expecting a lot more for the price I paid. I read the text and followed the exercises and completed it in less than two hours. I really want to continue the series but not at that price.

    Very Good but Too Short

    First of all, this was worth the $15 I paid for it because I have a much better grasp of harmonic theory now and I’ve never even finished any of the other music theory books I’ve read.

    The interactive examples are great and they explain the concepts very clearly. That said, I wish it was longer as it doesnt even touch on augments, suspended and other advanced chord types. It’s great but don’t expect to learn anything beyond inversions. I’m sure the next book in the series will tackle advanced topics and I’ll definitely be buying it.

    Absolutely Amazing Book and Accompanying Website!

    I have been looking for a book that would explain music theory in a clear and concise way; I have read many books and have taken a few classes on music theory , etc... but I have never come across a book that explains it so clearly and effortlessly. The information in this book is strategic and focused ; it will teach you how to formulate chord progressions that sound good, and how to develop melodies that will complement those progressions. I love this book, is there another one coming ? I can't wait.
