I'm getting read to hit the road recruiting for my employer at a few colleges and I don't want to chat with the people accompanying me on this trip. What a better time than to actually learn something? Anyway, who can offer ideas for texts geared towards music theory? (Not true beginner stuff as I've already worked through a couple.) Anything geared towards the guitarist is a plus, though I don't expect many of those to exist.
- One school I'm attending lists "Music in Theory and Practice, Vol1" by Benward as required reading for Music Theory 1 and 2.
- Another lists "The Musician’s Guide to Theory and Analysis" by Clendinning & Marvin.
- University of La Verne may have textbooks online for MT I through IV that I overlooked, but I couldn't find that information.
- Berklee has their own and Amazon wouldn't get them to me in time.
Am I wasting my time? Should I just focus on technique and singing while playing?
