    No nonsense As a beginner I learn far better if I understand why I'm learning rather than rote memorization. This book got me started on the right track and was fairly easy to digest. I strongly recommend reading and understanding the concepts in this book before or when starting guitar lessons. I feel it will help prevent me from giving up and quitting out of frustration.

    Very good beginner theory for guitarists. This demystifies scale and chord construction in accessible language. Shipley doesn’t attempt to cover all theory details. He gives the guitarist a foundation that will make it easier to dig deeper.

    As a guitar player who just knew how to play tabs, this books really helps to introduce the basics in musical structure in guitar

    Very helpful, especially for beginners, but still helpful for those with some guitar knowledge and need it sorted out.

    Good basic music theory Written clearly this book introduces music theory for guitarists. There are more complete and complex books on the subject but this is a great introduction.
