This volume is dedicated to showcasing all diatonic material found in each and every key of music that exists on the circle of fifths. The term diatonic realm is used in this book to describe that musical realm of material which is only of the given key as found on the circle. That diatonic material is and does remain musical, yet has an end. And because of this trait, it is subject to full documentation. For that is, essentially, the service this music reference provides, as all that exists in the diatonic realm remains its only focus. From the most frequently used key signatures, to the more common chord progressions, from every diatonic triad chord, to every color tone, seventh chord and extension, all is captured right here at your fingertips! And most importantly, each key of music receives identical treatment. There are no musical shortcuts of any kind taken as all enharmonic equivalent keys are fully showcased.

About the Author

Meet the author, Walter "Kapowski" Klosowski! In addition to writing books like this, Kapowski is also a professional guitarist and public school music educator. He holds a Masters Degree in Music Theory on scholarship with emphasis on classical guitar as well as a Bachelors Degree in Music Theory/Composition and Guitar Performance. He is also a recipient of the Piano Guild USA Sonatina Award as well as three NFSM piano federation competition pins. His book, The Unabridged Circle of Fifths, is the seventh volume in his UNABRIDGED DIATONICS™ series. It was written in direct response to the lack of scholarly materials that deal solely with the keys of music on the circle in their entirety. All too often the keys of music receive but a chapter or less in the typical music theory text or dictionary. But simply put, not enough time is spent formally with the keys of music let alone full exploration of the circle itself at the onset of instruction. This music reference is an effort to counter the situation, as The Unabridged Circle of Fifths delineates every music key found on the circle, major, minor, enharmonic or otherwise, while the organization of which keeps things simple to use. Enjoy!
