Hello all,
I lost a lot of stuff in a flood 4 years ago. A lot of books.
I have my fakebooks still, but I lost my instruction books from the 70s and 80s.

One of the books I'm looking for is "Styles For The Studio" by Leon White.
It was no big deal. I think I used it for learning scales. I went looking for it online and found only 2 or 4 copys and all starting at over $95.00!

I don't get it. Why is it so valuable?
If any guitarist who knows of this book can tell me if you can why it is such a rare item, I'd be grateful.

I still have "From Sight to Sound" which can be purchased for a normal price.

Anyone have a suggestion for a book for learning scales, please advise me. No tab though, I can't do tab.

Thank you in advance, Wayne,

Learning to play the guitar again after 10 years is not like the old saying, "It's just like riding a bike". At least not for me. I need to practice and that means scales for me. I've got good chord books.

Anyone have a suggestion for a good book for learning scales, please advise me.
I can't do tab.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Wayne,

Hi Wayne, the best scale book for us guitarist’s that I have found is “The Gig Bag Book Of Scales For All Guitarists”. It contains 180 scales in both tap and notation. I bought it at Barnes n Nobles for $15 USD. You may find it cheaper on the internet. This will cover any scale you will need to know and then some.

I hope this helps – MarioD

Hi MarioD,
It looks like a good one. But I don't think it had caged fretboard diagrams. I'm not such a good reader.
I'm looking for something that has patterns. Like the way chord books are.
I'm still researching guitar books. But when I find something I think I'm getting The book you suggested as well. It's very reasonable.
Thanks, Wayne

I had that book when I was a kid. I really wish I could find it, but it probably got lost in a move somewhere along the line.

I've searched a lot of guitar and Jazz forums and nobody knows what happened to Leon White Books. The only one in print is Sight To Sound, for reading music. I have that one, pretty old but great shape.

I remember going through this when I had to replace my Chord book. I had to buy a few and then send them back till I found the right one. If I only lived near a music store.

Any other scale/pattern books that helped guitarists?

Thanks, Wayne

Anybody have Ted Greenes' "Jazz Guitar Single Note Soloing" 1 or 2?

After this post, I promise I'll stop.
Wayne,

Wayne, how big a hurry are you for the books. I visit book sales and used book stores ad hoc, but my ex visits them frequently as she is a Winston Churchill and WWll historian. I would request she keep and eye out for them. My daughter had a basement flood three years ago and we are slowly replacing works of literature that were important to her. I found Ted Greene's Chord Chemistry in a used book store for $2.00!
Books can become old friends so let me know. DennisD

Thanks for the links. I've been to those sights and they don't have the book there. But I emailed them a couple of times and asked. No reply yet but, maybe they know how I can get a copy. Maybe they will brong it out again.

I found 2 sellers and they want over $95.00 for it. That's insane.

Thanks again, Wayne

Thank you DennisD,

Yes if you could be on the lookout for this I'd really be grateful.
Styles For The Studio, by Leon White.
There's a picture of it here, http://tedgreenebookeditions.com/Dalezdenek/LeonWhite/StylesfortheStudio/index.html
It really shoud only be a few bucks. I really don't understand the price of the private sellers I found. $95.00
Thanks again, Wayne

p.s. I did find my Ted Greenes books :-)

Yeah, that is insane. I once say a book I wanted (even in current production) that Amazon wanted $90.00, then I found it on the 'net at Warren Buffet's bookstore for online for $19.99! So keep trying... I saw also a service that would scan the book for your too since the book is n longer in production...

Crazy, right?
The book cost $4.95 years ago, but still, his other book, "From Sight To Sound", new, right now is only $13.30.
I'm still baffled why this book has vanished.
I'm surprised no one has scanned it and put it on the internet, like in PDF. I'd pay!
Still no reply from the Publisher, we'll see.
Wayne,

User Blog - How To Record a Cover Song Using Band-in-a-Box and RealBand

Joanne Cooper's final blog post for 2017, How to record a cover song using Band-in-a-Box and RealBand is a must-read!

Joanne summarizes the steps she took to produce her cover of "Old Lang Syne" - her final result was posted to the User Showcase Forum: Listen to Auld Lang Syne

Announcing…The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

We are excited to announce the release of a new project: The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)

Songwriter Floyd Jane shows the songwriting process from inspiration to performance and publication: http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=IYMMZVvQdCw

The idea for this project came about when many members on this forum and elsewhere were asking questions about the song writing process. There are many aspects, and many parts of it necessary to create a song, get it arranged, performed, and then published on the internet. So we asked the great songwriter Floyd Jane, who is a regular member on this forum, if he could help. Floyd agreed and was even able to collaborate with other forum members, Janice and Bud. The result is this video we put together that you can see on YouTube or Facebook, called "The Birth of a Song (w/Floyd Jane)".

We hope this video helps other songwriters with their songwriting process, and also shows them tools that are available to them along the way. Also, we mention this User Showcase Forum, and hope to see many new aspiring or accomplished songwriters join this community :blush:

A big Thank You to Floyd for sharing your knowledge with the community and making this possible. And to Janice and Bud for your great collaboration!

Here is Floyd's original forum post for his song "A Little Bit Of Me": http://www.pgmusic.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=433190

Check out Floyd / Janice & Bud’s music here:

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows - 49 Requests Fulfilled!

Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows boasts more than 50 new features... and a lot of the new features fill the requests posted by program users!

Some of these include:

Q. I am learning guitar. The RealTracks are very helpful in that I can hear great guitar players, and most of the tracks have tab and notation as well. But there is much more to guitar, could you include some videos of some of the RealTracks Artists? Because I would learn much more from seeing a guitarist than just hearing them.

A. We have a major new feature called "Video RealTracks." These work and sound like RealTracks, but you get to see a video of the Guitarist (or whatever instrument) playing as well. The amazing thing is that this works with any chord progression you type in. So, if you want to learn to play like the great guitarist Brent Mason, for example, you can type in chords to any progression you are interested in, and then hear and see a video of Brent soloing over your progression. Now you can learn much quicker, as it helps to see how a musician is performing, as well as to hear.

Q. I love the Audio Chord Wizard, as it figures out chords from mp3 and other audio files. But it is a separate program from Band-in-a-Box, and I can’t go back and forth to change things easily.

A. We've solved that, as BiaB 2018 has integrated the Audio Chord Wizard directly into Band-in-a-Box. Now load an audio file into BiaB, open the Audio Edit Window – Audio Chord Wizard mode, and let it automatically figure out the bar lines and chords for the song.

Q. I like to save songs as MP3 files, and can't do this with BiaB, except a very low quality one, 64kbps.

A. We've improved this, by adding support for Windows Media Foundation. This allows you to save MP3 in your choice of resolutions, up to very high 320mpbs. Better still, it works on current versions of Windows (Windows 7,8,10) and also on older versions too (Vista, XP).

We've answered 49 questions - review all of these answers on our forum post "49 of your Problems solved? List of 49 Requests fulfilled in Band-in-a-Box 2018" here.

All of the new features in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 for Windows can be reviewed at http://www.pgmusic.com/bbwin.new.htm
