    Not necessarily a book to go through from beginning to end, but a good basic reference on theory for guitarists. Chapters cover fretboard, basic music theory, scales, intervals, triads, harmonizing major and minor scales, chord construction, key centers, blues harmony and pentatonic scales, modes, and chord substitution. All this in clear, concise text and graphics. A one-page guitar notation legend is included along with a CD to accompany exercises and for ear training. Nice to have all this ba Not necessarily a book to go through from beginning to end, but a good basic reference on theory for guitarists.

    Got too advanced for what I was looking for, it's more of an educational workbook than something for casual players. Still, it was interesting and I can imagine it being very useful for someone willing to commit the time to go through and practice the drills/exercises. Learned a lot of stuff that I will forget in 2 days, but I can't fault the book for me not being 100% invested in becoming a musical theorist.

    Good book, most of it is clearly written and illustrated, including short exercises and quizzes that I think are effective. Towards the end it feels a little rushed and abrupt. My biggest complaint can't be attributed to the book itself so much as the format. Much of the content really needs to be memorized via repetition and practice; the book isn't oriented towards getting everything into long-term memory. Few books are or can be. So plan on making flashcards or reviewing sections of the book Good book, most of it is clearly written and illustrated, including short exercises and quizzes that I think are effective.

Much of the content really needs to be memorized via repetition and practice; the book isn't oriented towards getting everything into long-term memory. Few books are or can be. So plan on making flashcards or reviewing sections of the book many times, rather than only reading from front to back (as the author does mention). Even better, if you have an iPad, look into apps such as Waay, Tenuto, and Earpeggio, which are extremely helpful for learning and memorizing theory, reading staff/notes, identifying intervals, and much more.

    Still working on it, but taking lessons to supplement the drudgery of learning music from a book.

    I'd been playing guitar and thinking I understood music theory for years before I read this book. Music Theory for Guitarists set me straight and in a way that made sense in the context of the guitar.
