Learning from books is what I do best; videos are the next best thing.
I'll get these down in a list.For the moment I am using Harmony and Voice Leading, by Edward Aldwell, Carl Schachter, and Allen Cadwallader.I think I should finish this one first before venturing into deeper territory, no?
Thanks fenrir. I will give it a try.I found this a little while ago which was helpful. As for the books mentioned, well I'm not sure how just much deeper I really need to go as the type of music I would be trying to make is synth and sequencers etc. i.e. all my reading time spent on operation manuals .
I don't know the text but I would say if you're learning and finding it useful then there is no reason to move on. Schoenberg's Structural Functions of Harmony is not a beginners' harmony book. It presupposes a knowledge of basic diatonic and chromatic harmony and standard modulation patterns.
