For convenient reference, LaRue has organized a helpful "Cue Sheet for Style Analysis," which outlines the main points of his SHMRG discussions.
Besides the chapters on SHMRG elements, Guidelines contains chapters on "Fundamental Analytical Considerations," "Symbols for Analysis and Stereotypes of Shape" (the latter presenting comments and questions regarding traditional forms such as fugue, rondo, two-part, and sonata form), "Evaluation" (a rare discussion), and "Style Analysis in Full Action," which offers a penetrating model analysis of the first movement of Purcell's "Golden" Sonata.
Here are many engaging and helpful remarks on "Repetition," "Active Verbs," "Clue Words and Paragraph Structure," "Revision," "Synonyms for 'Interesting'," "Words for SHMRG Analysis," and so on--a practical section reminiscent of the pedagogical style of an efficient and dedicated teacher.
