A workbook based on the first three chapters of my book Modern Harmony Step by Step, that will allow you to train music theory in different keys and chord progressions, analyzing and composing songs and arrangements.

Many readers also wrote me asking for it to put into practice all the theory I advanced in this first publication.The main need was to practice the concepts in different keys, note combinations, chords, etc. To analyze also different chord progressions,chord substitution practice, resolutions, etc.
