    yeah, I've recently started studying classical harmony (by recent I mean for about a month or so).

    I've basically been absorbing sporadic tidbits of information from here and other internet sources.

    I'd like a more consistent resource, so I was wondering if anybody knew of any books I could get on the subject.



    thanks,
    -your friendly neighborhood IconBasser

    Hal Leonard has a really good music theory book. Hal Leonard Guitar Method: Music Theory. It is aimed at guitar players, but it explains it all in a straight forward manner. Comes with a CD as well.

    "Counterpoint" but Kent Kennan. It's expensive and small, but it's easily to follow.
    I'd try and find it used or at a library.

    Best book I've read on Theory ever - is :

    The Jazz Theory Book by Mark Levine

    99% of it applies to any genre - but the Jazz examples are very useful for "getting" what it really means ! :)
