Sonic Resource Guide is a reference book for the application of set theory principles to jazz improvisation.

Jazz musicians will find this book user friendly because all relationships are listed as both pitch names and scale degrees. Set theory students will find each pitch class set is also expressed in its prime form. 702 pages.

KEY NOTE RECOGNITION - EBOOK/PDF VERSION
To play "by ear," a musician must first sense the key a chord or chord progression is in. You must also be able to sense key modulations in order to follow chord progressions that change key. The exercise found in this book is crucial to developing these skills.

Imagine being able to know the key of what you are hearing by just playing one note on your instrument. Think about the power this gives you to follow unfamiliar chord changes and get a quick sense of where keys are changing. This is the first step in developing the ability to follow complicated chord changes or to make informed scale choices when playing over a chord progression.

More importantly, developing the skills found in this book allows you to organize and remember sound based on how you hear it, not on how you consciously think about it. It will move you away from remembering sound based on non-musical distinctions such as instrument fingerings, and toward remembering and organizing sound based on how you hear it. Ultimately, this brings you closer to a deeper understanding of music and you will be able to store and retrieve music in your mind from a much more musical place. Written in standard notation (no TAB). 36 pages.
