Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I'm looking to learn more music theory. I play upright bass as essentially a beginner -- I can learn a piece and play it relatively well, reading the bass staff slowly. I have a good ear for intervals, and, when practicing, can pick out when I'm sharp or flat (to a degree).
I can't tell notes by ear, let alone chords. I took a music theory class in college as an elective and did well, and understand some of the basics of song construction.
What I'm looking for is an audio-based approach to learning more music theory, whether it be ear training for notes (which I consider pretty basic, but important) or something more advanced, such as learning notes by ear and then moving into keys, scales, intervals and so on.
There's tons of books out there, and plenty of courses I could do, but here's why I made the thread:
Are there any audio books, or training tools that exist primarily as a CD or MP3s? I work in a computer-based job where I can listen to music for a large portion of any given day, and would rather use this flexibility to improve my music skills.
