Right now, there are two available areas: scales and arpeggios. The arpeggios section provides you with pdf files for all the major and minor arpeggios based of the major and minor triads.

These files also include suggested fingerings. Theory Welcome to the world of music theory. In writing this area of the OC, I am trying to provide a comprehensive overview of basic music theory and traditional chord analysis.

There are a few inherent challenges associated with writing a theory section, and I would like to discuss those briefly. First, music constantly evolves. The theory I learned in school related most specifically to classical music.

If you analyze romantic, impressionistic, or serial music, however, it becomes increasingly more difficult to apply the same theory to these new approaches to composing music.

Now, with the development of rock and pop music, new theoretical questions arise. Do power chords have a function in the traditional meaning of "chord" or do they actually serve as an emphasis of melody? How do sus chords function? My initial goal for this section is to give you a decent understanding of theory relating to traditional analysis. When I complete this area of the theory section, I will attempt to consolidate the material to make sense within our present musical environment.

Secondly, this material is labeled "theory. The explanations I provide represent my understanding of music. What I hope is that you will gain some new insight into areas of theory you are unfamiliar with and learn to develop your own true understanding of music. Please enjoy what I have to offer, and feel free to provide me with comments and feedback.

Merch Dream Theater have steadily achieved a startlingly sublime synthesis of soaring and unmistakable melody, progressive instrumentation and aggressive heaviness unrivaled within hard rock music. The legacy established throughout their virtuosic career of astounding aesthetic alchemy has made their very moniker synonymous with the power of talent, ability and momentum when brilliantly forged together. As the world around them unravels, unfurls and transitions toward an uncertain destiny economically, militarily, spiritually and politically, Dream Theater refashioned a way forward from the molten hot iron of their own internal transition to create the career-defining album A Dramatic Turn of Events. We infused definitive styles that were predominant in our music: the progressive end and the metal end, with the melodic element pretty high up on the list of priorities. Longtime fans of the band intrigued by the speediness of the notes on display from Dream Theater have much to study on the new album, while fans of melodic hooks will find equal pleasure within the songs. Perhaps most excitingly, as always, the progressive and the heavy compliment one another without the risk of one overshadowing the other. Dream Theater knew they wanted the album to be both heavy and melodic musically and vocally and with that determination of vision they obtained that goal.
