The Thesaurus of Scale Tone Chords







The Thesaurus of Scale Tone Chords presents the gamut of fundamental chord forms from the quintessential harmonic scales. Specifically, making no distinction for notes of the same name in different octaves, every permutation of triads and tetrads which can be derived from the Major, Harmonic Minor, Melodic Minor, Harmonic Major, Double Harmonic Major, and the Augmented, Dominant Diminished and Whole Tone scales has been included.

Additionally, a unique system of identifying various chord types is employed allowing for easy cross referencing.

". . It's a wonderful tool for composing and arranging. I played through some of the voicings with my lute . . .and they sound very rich and beautiful in the lute tuning. . . This book is really on the level of Mick Goodrick's books".


 Steve Shepard (The Unknown Guitar Player):

" . . I think that those of you who appreciate the depth of his blog will be very pleased with the book. It's definitely not a how-to or a lick book. It's the same kind of serious, in-depth inquiry you find on his blog. I'm really looking forward to spending some time with it".
