I know there has been some discussion on this forum regarding the Mick Goodrick Mr Goodchord Volumes and that they have been out of print for some time. I have access to a scanner at work that can scan through its feed tray on the top of the copier. Wondering if anyone out there would mind me borrowing their Goodchord volumes to scan in. I don't know what legal climate this would put us all in, as it is copyrighted material, however, it's been out of publication and therefore there is no legal means of purchasing the book and thereby giving money to the proper author and publisher. Please let me know if you would mind my borrowing a copy in order to scan in a version for myself.
Thanks in advance. Also, if this post gets taken down its no big deal. I realize the area of the law that this request puts us all in. So if this post disappears, no harm no foul and I won't touch the subject again. I'm exploring the possibilities of Sher publishing reissuing the volumes of the almanacs, and all of Mick's published works if they would.
Viewfinder anime download. So why not join the digital age and read Manga online?
This would put the material at easy access to everyone since Sher is widely distributed, and a great publisher by the way. If there were a digital copy floating around out there, it'd probably torpedo any possibilities of that happening.
I just posted something about this on the thread I've got running in this forum. I'd encourage anyone interested in urging Sher in this endeavour to write to Sher and throw in your two cents. I'd also try to discourage dissemination of scanned digital copies at this point. But do what you must. It'd just be nice if a good publisher felt it was worth their time, and everyone could buy it (hard and/or download) with a benefit to the author.
Is anyone using this material? Care to share your progress on the Goodchord thread? Thanks David.
It sounds to me like this fellow Goodrick had some friends in the Boston-area academic computing community, at some point, and they got to start talking music theory. And one of them, probably said, 'Gee it would be simple enough to write a program, to generate the permutations of these voice movements'. And it sounds like they went ahead and did it. Don't you think this is what happened? Lots of people have commented on unplayable note combinations, and the vast number of combinations, without any real sense of being able to figure out what is usable vs.

What is not.Not at all. Though these volumes are organized to provide an exhaustive listing of voicing permutations, they are also designed as MUSICAL ideas. I knew Mick when he was putting these volumes together and they were a painstaking exploration of musical combinations based on established rules of voice leading.

What resulted was something that is permutation based but organized to allow musical concepts to be employed in ways that musicians, especially guitarists don't even consider. Of course this can be done on a spread sheet these days.
There's a member on the forum who's been putting together an app. That's good and fine, and if you wanted to put these together, you could take the guiding voice leading rules and do it yourself.
That's what Mick did. Go ahead, anyone is welcome to do that. But having the volumes, having this material, whether it's generated by your own spreadsheet program or whether it's coming from a book that's got this worked out for you, is not the point. The point is musicians have long looked at their choice of chords in any particular situation as being determined by a set of chord families (drop 2, drop 3, etc) and the movement of roots tends to follow with root in bass position or a choice of inversion based on those small families of chord families. Much less often do we think in terms of voices moving linearally, with roots moving within the chord position to assure a melodic flow of each voice.
This is the real beauty of the book: to provide an exhaustive compendium of chord flow based on root movement in cycles, in seconds, thirds, fourths, etc. If you begin to work with this material, you might learn that it's not necessarily useful to read through the pages in a linear way, but you may begin to acquire a sense of chord movement that is unlike anything anyone else has done and imparts a sense of melodic and harmonic flow through a set of changes. Piano players can play this way; they can see the voices laid out. Guitarists don't have the luxury of linear lay out so there is a solution, use a fixed chord voicing and move it around the fingerboard following the harmony. The almanacs give you a way of 'seeing' root flow within the chords, developing a sense of melodic options that are largely the realm of pianists or composers. As far as the unplayability of some combinations, there are solutions. Fingerstyle players have more options with this material.
