New to music theory, but not to music... advice?
So, here's my deal:
I've been playing guitar since I was 10(11 years ago) and have since added bass and drums to the roster. I also like to make music with my computer using Reason. I started on my own and have since never taken any sort of lessons or anything. I just write what I want to hear. I feel I have a strong understanding of music as a feeling, but I would like to extend it into a more of a technical understanding. I know where notes are and I know basic chords. I would like to learn music theory, but I am not sure where to start. I am planning on attending Berklee college of music next year, so I would like a head start on music theory as I am sure they would appreciate that. So, I was wondering if anyone would recommend a book or program or something to help me get my foundations. I am sure it would also help me better my songwriting as well. Thanks in advance!
There's, um, music kebabs, music creole, music gumbo, pan fried, deep fried, stir fried. There's pineapple music and lemon music, coconut music, pepper music, music soup, music stew, music salad, music and potatoes, music burger, music sandwich... that's about it. Oh... and music shrimp.
