Music Theory: The TL;DR Version

In the world of electronic music production, music theory often gets neglected. People think it's boring, some even believe it inhibits creativity. 

The truth is, music theory helps. A lot. The technical side of music production - mixing, mastering, sound design - while important, means nothing unless your music is well composed. Understanding music theory opens up new pathways and allows for confidence, control, and creative freedom.

Music Theory: The TL;DR Version written by Reginald Young (aka Neon the Rex) is a comprehensive yet easily consumable eBook that covers the fundamentals of music theory as well as intermediate concepts. 

Topics covered:

- Basic melody (scales, intervals, melodies)

- Basic harmony (types of chord, inversions, variations)

- Intermediate melody (counterpoint, harmonizing a melody)

- Intermediate harmony (altered & applied chords, mixture, analysing chord progressions)

- Rhythm (notation, syncopation, polyrhythms)

- Time signatures

- The circle of fifths

Who's it for?


Music Theory: The TL;DR Version covers a range of concepts that will benefit both beginners and those with a more advanced knowledge of theory.
