I wrote Music Theory for Producers because, as a producer, I didn’t feel that there were any books on music theory that were designed specifically for my needs. Producers are an interesting group; they aren’t just musicians, and they aren’t just engineers. They have to have a little bit of everything to get the job done. This guide is a no-frills look at music theory that skips the less important details and goes straight to the essential information. You’ll learn about rhythm, harmony, and melody, including building chord progressions and writing instrumental hooks. The best part about this book is the song analyses. For every section, there are several songs that are broken down in terms of the chapter topic. With this guide, you’ll learn the theory behind: Elevators – OutKast The Otherside – The Roots Apache Rose Peacock – RHCP Blow My High – Kendrick Lamar Xxplosive – Dr. Dre Call Tyrone – Erykah Badu Get Lucky – Daft Punk Let Me Watch – MF DOOM Ms. Jackson – OutKast Poundcake – Drake Hol’ Up – Kendrick Lamar Pursuit of Happiness – Kid Cudi/Ratatat Seventeen Years – Ratatat Big Poppa – Notorious B.I.G. Stan – Eminem Kids – MGMT Breaking Away – Ratatat Girl – Destiny’s Child
