Limited Edition. Advanced Level. The motivation for this book was to develop my The Complete Thesaurus of Musical Scales and delve into my findings about music education. This book is also intended to answer guitar players demands for my harmony lessons (this textbook price is more reasonable than a one-time private lesson fee). This book offers guitarists an effective and novel approach to contemporary guitar harmony. I have presented all possible (forty-three) four-note groupings (i.e. subsets), which may be used for tonal or meta-tonal harmonic progressions currently acceptable on the contemporary music scene. The principles in this book are not of passing theoretical interest, but an effective guide to musical life and how guitar harmony can be expanded to the fullest extent. Knowing possibilities in four-note groups and voicings systems will begin to unlock possibilities for music in the 21st century. Further possibilities live in each one of our guitars, waiting to be discovered. I would like to dedicate this book to all guitarists from the four corners of the earth, who wish to expand their expressive palette in Contemporary Guitar Harmony.
