4.0 out of 5 stars seriously useful for intermediate guitarists, 15 Jun. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hal Leonard Guitar Method Music Theory (Book/Online Audio) (Paperback)
This book is a really useful, comprehensive and easy way of learning music theory. It is based around guitar with all the theory and exercises specifically guitar based, so for a guitar player such as myself, it is a lot more useful than a standard theory guide. All basic and more complex aspects of theory are explained, including reading music, chord formations and scale theory. There are also useful quizzes at the end of each section to test your knowledge.

The book is ideal for anyone who wants to learn a bit of theory. Unlike some books, it doesn't assume you already know anything or use terms without explaining them. It can also be used by more experienced guitarists as it covers most common aspects of theory, so you can either learn from scratch or just improve your knowledge. It also comes with a CD which means you can check that you are playing the exercises (scales etc) correctly. My only one complaint is the diagrams that are supposed to "explain" major scales, as I really didn't understand them, although the explanation of how they are formed is useful. I would recommend this to most guitarists, although if you are a beginner you may want to learn the basics of playing first.
