Composing Lines a la Bach's 2 and 3 part inventions
Can anyone offer any suggestions on composing multiple lines of music like the ones heard in Bach's 2 and 3 part inventions. I've been recently inspired by Jason Becker's Air and thought that it sounded similar to Bach's Inventions. I've come up with some cool ideas but if anyone has any suggestions such as books on counterpoint or suggestions on other pieces to study that would be awesome.
I used Kent Kennan's book on counterpoint in my class on the subject last year. It was a little on the dry side, but very thorough. It will explain all the intricate details about writting in the style of 17th and 18th century counterpoint.
Thanks. Probably one of the most expensive books on music I've seen but it looks to be worth it.
