I wrote Music Theory for Producers because, as a producer, I didn’t feel that there were any books on music theory that were designed specifically for my needs.  Producers are an interesting group; they aren’t just musicians, and they aren’t just engineers.  They have to have a little bit of everything to get the job done.

This guide is a no-frills look at music theory that skips the less important details and goes straight to the essential information.  You’ll learn about rhythm, harmony, and melody, including building chord progressions and writing instrumental hooks.

The best part about this book is the song analyses.  For every section, there are several songs that are broken down in terms of the chapter topic.  With this guide, you’ll learn the theory behind:
