With this book, Mick has changed the face of harmony: for the guitar and other instruments. I studied an advance copy of Mick's book. After saying 'wow' and 'oh my god' a million times, I am convinced that this is our new harmonic bible. With unbelievable voicings never heard before, new sounding arpeggios, and superb voice leading, Mick has brought us flying into the 21st Century! RUN to get your copy now!-Joe Diorio
…like receiving an opened-ended letter from a distant planet, filled with the truth-serum of the universe...-Pat Metheny
If extraterrestrials should happen to find this book a thousand years from now on our desolate planet, they'll assume we were a very clever species with an advanced knowledge of art and mathematics.-Carla Bley
It is very rare that a supremely gifted artist can produce a work of such scholarly significance - with an air of ease, a sense of humor and a lightness of spirit - this is practically unheard of. Mick has opened doors for all of us, players and writers, with a clarity and confidence that is immensely engaging and informative. A major work.-Bob Brookmeyer
Pure, objective information -- the real thing - presented in a way that invites the reader's interpretation, with potentially vast artistic implications. [Mick Goodrick] continues to instruct, enlighten and inspire, with or without his guitar in hand.-Wayne Krantz
Wow! This book is thorough! With a capital "T", capital "H", capital "O", capital "R", capital "O", capital "U", capital "G", and capital "H". I haven't seen anything anywhere near this comprehensive since Slonimsky's Thesaurus of Scales and Melodic Patterns. I love [the] intro, about doing the discovery yourself, too. I always have felt that spoon feeding people information actually inhibits their potential, and [Mick's] right, there is some fascinating and beautiful music hidden here in the math. Thank you for sharing it...
Mick is one of the acknowledged masters of all time on his instrument and is known for his command of voicings. His first book, The Advancing Guitarist, is considered a classic among musicians. Here (and in future volumes) he has laid out the whole deal; systematically, organized and for all instruments. This book is for serious musicians!-Dave Liebman
If you're weary of the stock voicings you've sunk into over the years, relief is at hand. Mr. Goodchord offers the means to think yourself into richly fertile musical terrain, from which reflexive solutions to harmonic motion have been banished. I've just begun myself, but I'm sure that assiduous application to the materials in this remarkable book will provide me the means to escape the little harmony box I've made for myself. Thanks, Goodchord; I needed that.-Steve Swallow
What a wonderful (and helpful) piece of work! I have truly enjoyed going through the books and discovering fresh insights. I found myself experimenting with these concepts on my latest Solo Piano tour and it was nice to feel the pieces of the harmonic puzzle coming together. In my master classes I tell my students that it is always important to keep a "curious child" attitude and this will let you keep on growing as an artist. These two voice-leading books have exposed me to some exciting and musical ideas which I plan to explore even more in the near future. Congratulations!-Michel Camilo
Mick Goodrick is a master of the guitar and a master-teacher. This new book will help any musician who takes the time to work through its pages.-Charlie Banacos
Mr. Goodrick has created a potent combination of prayer book and launch codes that is guaranteed to refresh the innermost parts of even the most experienced ears and artistic signatures.-Steve Rochinski
(Mick's book)…has an unusual and great concept. The harmonies flow beautifully and the voice leading is almost Zen-like. This book will bring out good things in those who work with it.-Laszlo Gardony
Mr. Goodchord is the Leading Voice of Voice Leading.-Greg Hopkins
What many of us have suspected all along has been proven to be true- Johann Sebastian Bach has been re-incarnated, wears a cap and suspenders, plays the guitar, and has just released a book under the name Mick Goodrick.
Honestly, this book, if understood properly, packs the approximate power of a nuclear device. If Slonimsky's Thesaurus of Scales and Melodic Patterns has been a bible of sorts for musicians, Mick's book is at least four times more mind-altering. It's an infinite, inexhaustible look at the fundamental act that allows tones to co-exist and move musically - voice-leading.
In a sane world, this book would become the standard harmony text for musicians everywhere. It's like a cool drink of living water in a desert of dry, dead texts.-Matt Glaser
