The Architecture of Music Volume 3: Enhanced Chord and Scale Encyclopedia for the Piano

Greg Aranda, Architect
Free sample

 The Architecture of Music Volume 3 is a comprehensive chord and scale encyclopedia for the piano that includes 180 chords and 5 scales in each key. It uses music theory to simplify and organize chords, scales, and modes. Included with each scale are diagrams that break down the scales into modes to create complete chord lists that can be played with every note in each key. The chord encyclopedia contains 90 negative chords often referred to as first chord inversions. 

The Architecture of Music cracks open the architecture behind chords, scales, and modes and analyses them in a way that’s never been done before. It uses the circle of fifths as a tool to visually describe the way every chord, scale, and mode sounds to make searching for a chord or scale to play easier. And it organizes and presents chords and scales in such a way to make them simpler to learn and use.

Underneath every chord, every scale and every song, there is architecture that is difficult to see and comprehend. And yet, once it is understood, it is impossible not to use. This book is not about style, genre, or technique. It is simply the most complete and organized chord and scale encyclopedia ever written.

The book’s diagrams serve to help explore and explain music theory through playing the piano. It does not teach how to read or write music in standard musical notation. However, the information contained within is universal to all twelve-toned musical instruments and is meant to be used as a comprehensive reference guide and tool for writing and analyzing music.

It is easy to become overwhelmed trying to play a chord for the first time or looking for a new scale to play, not to mention the extremely intimidating idea of learning music theory. This book was created to simplify this process, and begin to answer why some chords sound good, some chords sound bad, and which chords sound good together.

Fear not the word “theory.” It is only the all encompassing catch-all word for music that (in it) contains every shred of information that could ever be used to explain the how and why of music and sound. Theory is the physics we cannot see. It is the math we cannot hear. It is the explanation of all, and the proving of nothing. This book is not a book on theory. All that can be found within, is The Architecture of Music.
