Overview

GARAGE BAND THEORY - TOOLS the PRO'S USE to PLAY BY EAR: music theory-learn to read & play by ear, tab & notation for guitar, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, piano, beginner & advanced lessons, improvisation, chords & scales for jazz and blues by Duke Sharp

This is non-academic, practical, useful theory for living-room pickers and working musicians who want to be able to think coherently about music in order to ask questions and understand answers about the music they want to play.

The stuff in GBT is about understanding The Beatles and The Rolling Stones,  Cole Porter and Duke Ellington, The Grateful Dead and Vampire Weekend.

It's NOT about analyzing Bach Fugues... but you'll be able to if you want to.

It was written for the 99% of musicians who are NOT music majors by a incorrigible honky-tonk guitar player who plays by ear ... but understands the relevant vocabulary and what's sensible and useful for MOST players.

'Garage Band Theory is a must for any musician.' Rodney Crowell

'Don't be put off by this giant book - Duke's got the secrets of the universe in here. Quite simply, this is the most comprehensive book on music theory I've ever seen.'
Bill Payne (Little Feat)

'Something for every musician at any level. Especially helpful is the musical notation and tablature for a variety of instruments. This book inspires me to learn and practice more.'
Sam Bush

'Garage Band Theory is a veritable encyclopedia of useful tools and tips.This book lifts the lid off the 'black box' of music theory and let's the light shine in - and in a fun, practical way.
This is a book which should be left handily lying around the living room, bedside, studio, classroom, (restroom?) - ready to be dipped into at any time for reference purposes or just to improve or refresh one's fluency in the language of music.
A great resource for musicians young and old no matter what your training. For the price of a one-hour lesson, GBT offers a lifetime of learning.'
Alasdair Fraser

'Garage Band Theory let me know how little I know... but in a good way.  It's a great book!' Sterling C Ball CEO, Ernie Ball Inc.

'This book is written in the people's key.' Kostas

'Garage Band Theory offers you everything you need to know to understand, play and make your own music. Because he is both an accomplished musician and teacher, Sharp's Garage Band Theory is an excellent guide for beginners and more advanced players alike.' Sam Barry, author, musician

No matter which instrument you want to play, the advice, inspiration and down-to-earth tips in this book will help you get to your goal.

Duke Sharp draws on a lifetime of experience playing, writing, recording and teaching music.

Garage Band Theory demystifies music theory and, in the process, shows how to apply basic music theory to the art of playing by ear and composition.

About the Author

Duke Sharp has produced five CDs of mostly original music 'Yucca Pie, Duke Sharp and Friends' described by one reviewer as "a unique blend of western, latin and jazz sounds," 'Pickin After Midnight In The Moonlight' a solo project with ten originals, mostly duets and one by Jim Averitt, 'Bozeman All Stars, Contrafactually Yours' an original jazz-lite CD with some of Bozeman's finest musicians, 'Matkatamiba' - mostly instrumental music inspired by Grand Canyon rafting trips, and 'Just the Two of Me' ... original instrumentals, a couple of his favorite traditional Irish melodies and blues standards. Duke has also co-produced two CDs with his longtime musical accomplice, Mike Parsons, an outstanding musician who plays just about anything that makes notes. 'Two Grass Crew, Gavotte in A Minor' is a collection of duets with Mike playing mandolin and violin, and 'The Big Lost' ... a collection of some of their favorite bluegrass standards, a couple of Grateful Dead covers, one by John Prine, all twisted just a bit into some unique and enjoyable arrangements. They're joined on this one by several of their Bozeman friends and two more from the musical Parsons clan. When Duke's not gigging you can find the'accidental' author hiking backcountry trails, white-water rafting rivers of the west, riding his bicycle, exploring Thailand or jamming at one of the legendary Miller family reunions. He lives in Montana among guitars, mandolins, rivers and mountains.
