In the world of electronic music production, music theory often gets neglected. People think it's boring, some even believe it inhibits creativity.
The truth is, music theory helps. A lot. The technical side of music production - mixing, mastering, sound design - while important, means nothing unless your music is well composed. Understanding music theory opens up new pathways and allows for confidence, control, and creative freedom.
Music Theory: The TL;DR Version written by Reginald Young (aka Neon the Rex) is a comprehensive yet easily consumable eBook that covers the fundamentals of music theory as well as intermediate concepts.
- Basic melody (scales, intervals, melodies)
- Basic harmony (types of chord, inversions, variations)
- Intermediate melody (counterpoint, harmonizing a melody)
- Intermediate harmony (altered & applied chords, mixture, analysing chord progressions)

- The circle of fifths
Who's it for?
