Does what it says on the tin! Music theory explained for the ordinary man.
14 January 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

For years, to paraphrase the famous quote, I didn't know anything about music, I just liked the sound it made. People talked to me about chords, keys and time signatures. I even bought a book or two. But it might just as well have been in Martian. The terms they were using to explain things themselves made no sense. Enter Howard Goodall. And suddenly someone was prepared to explain time signatures, chords, keys, rhythm, "beat" and all that stuff in terms I could understand. Suddenly, I knew what a chord was. And why it's called a "diminished seventh". A whole new world opened up before my eyes, or rather, beside my ears. Goodall even made me realise that hip-hop is a real art-form and not just angry noise, and why. The man's a genius.

If you like music, but don't understand it, you simply *must* watch this series. More like it, please, Channel 4. And the sooner this gets onto DVD, the better.
