  • April 28, 2011 The Musical Magical book

    At the time i write this book iive worked my way about half way through the book its great its challenging. The Cd's that it comes with are handy when you want to hear a particular piece before you start learning it so you can decide before hand if...

    you want to put forth the effort into mastering it. i have a few beefs with this book. first of you learn to play in minors which is interesting but for some minors the order of the songs for minors is confusing, for example if you were to learn the minor of F which is D and you saw a song next to the D minor scale page you would assume that its in D because its next to the D minor page. in actuality its not and a song in D minor isnt found till about 3 pages or so later. The book itself no where tells you how to play in Flats just in sharps which i didnt understand because there are songs that are in flats. despite all that ive said its a great book.

    I too bought the book after I completed Alfred's Adult course and found it very easy to read and understand, along with some great exercises on music theory and tips. I definitely recommend this book for adult beginners.
