Descrizione

Guitar Mathematics is a compendium of ‘things’ that make understanding the guitar easier for beginners, casual players, or pros. Guitar Mathematics is deliberately written to uncover the patterns and relationships that are used to create scales and chords, and the relationships between and within scales and chords. Guitar Mathematics is really a teacher’s notebook replete with scribbling in the margins and highlighted passages for easy reference.

CLOSING REMARKS

Introduction

Many people want to play a musical instrument but find the learning process to be too difficult. For those who do pursue music, several aspects of music theory stand in the way. The issue seems to be the need for the balance between the pure enjoyment of playing an instrument versus understanding what is behind the music being played.

The guitar has been around for quite some time. The guitar that we see today has an unknown history much before the Renaissance. The question as to whether the European guitar was introduced to medieval Europe from the Middle East, or if it was indigenous to Europe.

Whatever the natural evolution had been, the contemporary guitar remains a great stringed instrument enjoyed throughout the world today. This leads nicely into the need to understand how the guitar produces music.

There are several aspects of the guitar worth noting. First, the overall anatomy of the guitar helps to explain the production and projection of sound from the instrument. Second, the fretboard is the surface upon which all music is produced by changing the length of the strings with hand contact.

Collectively all the parts of the guitar, especially the fretboard, are the heart of guitar music. Much of Guitar Mathematics focuses upon what happens on the fretboard. Why? Because the fretboard is where the patterns and sounds are created.

The idea for Guitar Mathematics came from necessity. If one were to buy multiple music theory books or sit in boring lectures on music theory, the outcome would probably be the same. Why do I need to know this and how will it help my musicianship?

Likewise, there are so many things to learn when one choses an instrument. Whether it is piano, tuba, or guitar, all musicians face challenges with mastering their instrument and its nuances in the world of music. The dilemma is relatively common.

Guitar Mathematics is a compendium of ‘things’ that make understanding the guitar easier for beginners, casual players, or pros. As most great guitar players will tell you, I’m just a student of guitar - there is always something to learn and perfection is elusive so just try to stay in the groove. Guitar Mathematics is really a teacher’s notebook replete with scribblings
