Method that's teaching wrong material

Postby shimmy » Sat Sep 27, 2014 9:04 pm

Hi,

As a jazz musician, I just opened this book, and found some serious mistakes and wrong data.
I didn't looked throughout the book, but just from taking a glimpse on the first line I found the following errors:
Major modes are only Ionian, Lydian and Mixolydian. Additionally the chords suggested under the modes are incorrect, for instance, under Dorian and Aeolian you wrote dominant chords, which isn't correct. These modes are to be used over minor chords, not major/dominant ones.

I believe this book should be suspended until it's reviewed and seriously re-edited by author, as currently definitely teaching wrong information.

Best regards

Well I hardly think it's necessary (or something IMSLP would even consider) for it to be "suspended"; a note on the page ought to suffice.

There are many history books that would have what is considered now to be "wrong" information because newer information has corrected the mistakes. It will, indeed, be better to simply leave a comment on the work page.
