“This book is unique in that it applies combinatorial approach to harmony with materials generally known to the jazz improvisor, thus casting a new and exciting light on a familiar subject. It is also the only book I have seen of its kind to be so guitar-friendly. I am finding a vast store of possibilities here, and I am very grateful to Julio Herrlein for providing them.”
“Julio Herrlein has put together a very comprehensive overview of his approach to harmony and improvisation. His text is filled with useful and practical tools that will be very valuable to any serious student. Highly recommended.”
“Julio Herrlein’s Combinatorial Harmony book reveals all the possible combinations of notes and harmonic situ- ations you’ll need in order to be a creative and unique musician, regardless of the style you play. One of the best things about this book is that it really inspires you to come up with your own ideas. It shows the student all the different colors and canvases you have available, but you’re the one that has to paint it! I’m sure many serious guitarists (and other musicians) will benefit from this definitive work!”

What we see in this book is heavy artillery! Valuable information, deeply detailed and illustrated in order to bring both the student and the experienced musician the opportunity to experience harmony and all its combinatorial relations in a logical and effective way.
A good tree is one that produces good fruit, and the musical examples presented by Julio Herrlein in this book prove that. The tasteful exercises in this book demonstrate the genius of this virtuoso guitarist, who has now generously shared with us his knowledge.

COMBINATORIAL HARMONY - CONCEPTS AND TECHNIQUES FOR COMPOSING AND IMPROVISING (BY JULIO HERRLEIN) is a unique and complete system for exploring endless musical possibilities in any style. This book is a must for the contemporary musician. Despite being a guitar-friendly book with a complete mapping of the fretboard, the book is also useful for improvisers, arrangers, composers, theorists and students interested in the combinatorial approach to music. About 1,000 different voicings in all positions and drops are presented, including complete 3-note and 4-note voicings with specially designed guitar diagrams. The book also includes all triad-pairs (hexatonics) and their combinations in melodic exercises. The book presents brand new "combinatorial voice-leading", for 21st century chorale writing and contrapuntal exploring for any instrument or arrangement. In 312 pages, the book provides a vast store of material for compositional and improvisational use.
