Is the Guitar Grimoire series good for a music theory beginner like me? I hear good things about them so could you guys recommend me which one is best to start with?

get "the idiots guide to music theory".
seriously.
its an AMAZING book.
and no, im not calling you an idiot, that book (and about a week of guitar lessons) taught me most of what i know about music theory.
and i dont know ALL of it, but i'd like to think i know quite a bit.
my 6 best friends:
Ibanez Artcore AF75
Schecter C-1 Hellraiser
LTD H-207 7 string

The Bible is awesome. Revelation is so badass, I mean, dragons and angels and the devil having an epic battle in the clouds? Badass.

I'll give it a try. Those idiots guide books are awesome. Some years ago, I got the idiots guide to calculus, and it was the one book that made a light go off that said "this only seems complicated, its really pretty simple".

They aren't useful until you actually know how to apply them. They aren't any good for learning theory, just seeing things like scale formulas and what chords you can use certain scales/modes over. Get some theory under your belt, and then buy it as a resource, not a learning tool.

The vast majority of the book is redundant information, and it doesn't even touch upon the theory behind the concepts it discusses. Look elsewhere.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.
