THE MUSICAL ATARI is an introduction to both music and computing. Dozens of popular songs are specially arranged so they can be played on the piano or the Atari with equal ease. Written for the beginner, THE MUSICAL ATARI includes simple BASIC programs that allow you to play harmonies, melodies and rounds β€” converting any Atari Home Computer into a player piano or chord organ at the touch of a key.

The programs, music theory and notation are clearly explained, allowing non-musicians to play music written for piano, voice, or guitar on the Atari. A special chapter on sound effects includes short sound programs that can be incorporated into your own games. Also, the principles of BASIC programming covered in this fantastic book will help you develop games and other programs.

You don't need to be a musician to play beautiful music on the Atari, you only need THE MUSICAL ATARI!
