This book explains music’s comprehensive ontology, its way of existence and processing, as specified in its compact characterization: music embodies meaningful communication and mediates physically between its emotional and mental layers. The book unfolds in a basic discourse in everyday language that is accessible to everybody who wants to understand what this topic is about. Musical ontology is delayed in its fundamental dimensions: its realities, its meaningful communication, and its embodied utterance from musical creators to an interested audience.

The authors' approach is applicable to every musical genre and is scientific, the book is suitable for non-musicians and non-scientists alike.

Inside Songwriting Getting to the Heart of Creativity by Jason Blume Inside Songwriting Getting to the Heart of Creativity by Jason Blume

His songs have been recorded by an incredibly diverse range of artists, including Britney Spears and both the Backstreet Boys and the Oak Ridge Boys. And when he’s not writing music for chart-topping artists, he writes best-sellers. Jason Blume, author of the best-selling 6 Steps to Songwriting Success, returns with a book that has been called the musician’s version of Natalie Goldberg’s million-selling Writing Down the Bones.

Inside Songwriting presents both inspirational stories of the author’s long, and sometimes difficult, climb to the top, as well as practical advice, valuable tools, and instructive activities that no accomplished or aspiring songwriter, singer, or musician should be without. It provides a richly detailed, no-holds-barred account of the author’s personal experiences (trying to make a go of it in the topsy-turvy music world), and offers inspiration and practical instructions on the techniques and raw artistry required to put a song together.

Far from being a traditional "how-to,” each of the 60 short chapters in this book uses attention-grabbing anecdotes to relay valuable insights and important lessons. But Inside Songwriting also offers much more; it provides a rare look at the business of songwriting from "both sides of the desk,” and offers aspiring songwriters what they need most—encouragement, comfort, and hope.

Guitarists love amps—really love them. Amplifiers may look dull to the rest of the world, but to guitarists they are full of mystique, romance, and rockin' sound. And while there are many strong-selling electric guitar histories available, here's the first illustrated history of the electric guitar’s best friend, the amp.

World-famous guitar and amp historian Dave Hunter tells the story of 60 of the greatest amps ever built, including classics from Fender, Marshall, Vox, the bizarre EchoSonic that created Elvis' sound, and the ultimate esoteric $75,000+ Dumble amps. The story is illustrated with hundreds of technical photos, rare machines, catalogs, memorabilia, and the amps of the stars, from Jimi Hendrix to Stevie Ray Vaughan to Eric Clapton.

This is a book guitarists will drool over.
