    Recommended Books

    Sign in to disable this ad
    As per hitz suggestion Im making a list of recommended books.

    Books concerning overall success in life:

    "Think and Grow Rich" by Napoleon Hill
    -A MUST MUST ABSOLUTELY MUST read book about pretty much how to use the most valuable asset you will ever have - your head.

    Any other books by him are great as well.

    Music Theory

    "Theory of Harmony", "Counterpoint" and "Fundamentals of Composition" by Arnold Schoenberg - a contemporary composer, the first 2 books will give you a wealth of knowledge that can pretty soon teach how to compose entire symphonies.

    "6 Steps to Songwriting Success" - Jason Blume, a good read with some real gems.

    And add some other stuff dudes, I aint doin all the reading.

    Yeah, I would agree with both of those reads, we actually used them last semester as our text books.

    For those who midi and software challenged, "Complete Guide to Digital Audio" by Chris Middleton is a must have...
