Voggenreiter 1000 Tipps für Keyboard
Textbook and Reference BookThis book is one of the most informative and systematic that keyboard literature has to offer. On 264 pages both beginners and advanced learn, besides the different playing techniques, even complicated music theoretical facts like intervals, main and secondary triads, dominant and subdominate chains and modal scales. In addition, there is an extensive knowledge of styles with riffs and patterns, intros and endings of well-known, style-forming keyboard players such as Fats Domino, Elton John or Herbie Hancock. Furthermore, it has everything worth knowing about improvisation techniques, arrangements and compositions in blues, rock, pop, jazz and song accompaniment.
All information is conveyed in an easy and entertaining way, with and without notes, with the help of chord symbols and keyboard tabs that make special previous knowledge superfluous.
The "magic keyboard boards" for looking up chords, intervals and scales for every key, the detailed "keyboard lexicon" and last but not least, the accompanying CD with touch patterns, rhythms, improvisation exercises and examples of different keyboard styles round off this complete work.
