Mick Goodrick Voice Leading Almanac Pdf Download
Mick Goodrick has long been a hero and role model to me, and I've spent quite a bit of time working with his voice-leading material presented in the three volumes called Mr. Goodchord's Almanac of Guitar Voice-Leading for the Year 2001 and Beyond. I would go so far as to say that the material in these books changed my whole conception of music and the guitar. In the process of working with these concepts, I was slowly but surely able to wean myself from actually needing the books open on my music stand. As I was making that transition, I wrote a few notes that served as reminders for the different voice-leading cycles and chord types. I jokingly dubbed the result "Goodrick for Dummies." In the years since, I have shared my notes with interested students and fellow guitarists. One such guitarist, David Stern, was nice enough to clean up my document to make a more presentable version. While this version is still very much in shorthand form and may not mean much to anyone who doesn't already have at least a little experience with the material from the above-mentioned books, I am offering it here to anyone who is interested in hopes that it will be helpful.
