A new way to explore and examine the guitar and music will surely impress everyone as author Kevin Kriescher presents Geometric Guitar. Released through Xlibris, this book offers readers an informative and enriching reading experience.
Geometric Guitar offers readers a very unique look at music laced with mathematical concepts and definitions. The gamut of notes used within these pages has a frequency range of modulus twelve (semitones) and is more circular than linear, like a clock, because octaves are integer multiples of one fundamental frequency. It explains that five is not a factor of twelve, so the intervals one or five can individually be used to construct any note sequence. Readers will learn that the orthogonal parameters of strings and frets manifest multiples of one and five, circular music is also rectangular, the creative medium is also geometric, and as an aural and visual sculpture, music is less bounded. Ultimately, this book will help readers establish the realm of harmonic possibilities for the guitar.
Through Geometric Guitar, readers can expand their knowledge on music and enhance their skills as well. For more information, interested parties can log on to Xlibris.com.
