Harvard Brief Dictionary Of Music

This is a cover picture of the book I've owned for the better part of 40 years now. A simple paperback edition originally $3, its true value incalculatable in my home studies. Find a copy, pony up the big loot and a full spectrum of all musics opens for those who will read.

This non-fiction work is the whole tamale for the getting a full picture of the historical development of equal temper tuning. Dozens of now legendary figures from our Euro historical past enter into the story that weaves like a very very good mystery. Well worth the afternoon to read through the hundred pages or so to reshape our appreciation of today's pitches and encourage new journeys of your own curiosities. Which for me became the quest to understand ... now just how do we actually tune up a piano and then, how are those frets measured into the fingerboards of our guitars and then ... why are the fret markers where they are ... :)

Piano tuning and repair. In this next idea, we create a basic montuno vamp that utilizes the tonic to flat Two motion we find within the Latin styles. We not only readily find this motion within the literature but often improvise such vamps as intro's and outro's in performance. Example 5.
