The Harmonic Minor scale: what is it, why it is important, and how to play and use it in your guitar solos and compositions
Minor keys and the Harmonic minor scale. We’ll examine how the harmonic minor scale impacts minor key chord progressions, harmonic minor chord families, plus analyse examples of classic minor key chord sequences. After this chapter, you'll understand minor keys once and for all!
Key Changes and Modulation. Discover how composers use key changes and modulation in their music to create more interesting and creative music. We’ll look at modulating to relative minor keys, modulating to parallel keys, using V chords to create smooth key changes and more. Sounds complicated, but this book makes it easy to learn the basics of this complex topic

A Word From The Author
“Once I began writing the second volume in my Music Theory for Guitarists series, I realised it was going to be a monster book of epic proportions!
The problem was, everything in the book was so important that I couldn't decide what to cut out! So, I decided to create a third book in the series: Music Theory for Guitarists, Volume 3. By sticking with the same winning formula used in the first two books, I believe you can take your music theory knowledge to a pretty advanced level without it being difficult. Of course, there are many theory topics I chose not to include in this book, but I firmly believe that Volume 3 takes your knowledge to an advanced level which will enable you to understand even quite complex music forms, chord sequences, and improvisational approaches.
So I hope you'll join me, as we investigate some more in depth strategies involving modes, jazzy 'extended' chord sounds, the CAGED system, the Harmonic minor scale, minor key soloing strategies, secondary dominant chords, key changes and much more - and I show you achieving an advanced level of musical knowledge doesn't need to be difficult."
