Scoring Notes has a post today (June 20 2023) drawing attention to a new ‘cut down’ (not a criticism: the essentials, perhaps; easier to carry and maybe even use) edition, Behind Bars: General Conventions (Theory), of Elaine Gould’s indispensable original Behind Bars.
Note that the whole Behind Bars volume is available as an ebook on kindle, which makes it so easy to carry that I have it on my phone wherever I need. So I admit I wasn’t really impressed with this piece of news.
And the real book is always there on my desk…
I reference the whole original book (both the printed and Kindle versions). For those interested in the new “General Conventions” version make sure you are aware of the differences—there is a lot missing in this reduced version and it might not be as useful.
