These Are Facts Not Theory

Posted on: May 18th, 2010 by dville

Do you have an inquiring mind? Like to know how things fit together? Would you like a general understanding of how music works? The Natural Way To Music; An Organic Approach To Understanding Music is a 56-page book written by myself and banjo legend Bill Keith.

Using layman’s terms, the book answers many questions beginning musicians have such as what’s the difference between a Major and 7th chord? Why is a Perfect chord perfect? What is the Circle of 5ths? In a logical, step-by-step manner, The Natural Way To Music builds a solid foundation of musical understanding. Happy Traum of Homespun Tapes says “The Natural Way To Music brings the principles of music into clear focus for learning musicians. Jim D’Ville and Bill Keith have made this formidable subject easy, interesting and fun.”

    Just bought it from Amazon. So, here's a question: What format does the "Play Ukulele By Ear" video download come in? Can I open it in iTunes? Can it be viewed on an iPod, Pad or Phone? Thanks

  2. J-Hob says:

    Is your book available locally in the UK at all?

  3. Jim D'Ville says:

    Jon: I will check on those questions for you. Please send me your email so I may respond directly.J-Hob: No, only by mail. I am in the process of making it available as an e-book.

  4. J-Hob says:

    Thanks Jim, I'll look out for the e-book then. When are you planning on releasing it?
