My guitar playing is really lacking that whole theory side of things, im looking to learn how to read music and learn that whole other side of the instrument.

So my question to you is, what do you guys/girls recommend for a good book to learn from, or a book you dont recommend

Any information would be of great use, im hoping to go to college next year to study guitar so I need to get myself up to speed before the auditions

thanks a ton!

Harmony and Voice Leading is an amazing textbook if you're looking to know music theory at that deep of a level. For now, I'd say read the stickied threads on the Music Theory forum. Those are extremely useful, easy to understand, and they're free.

Funny you mentioned this because I just purchased "Music Theory For Dummies" yesterday. I haven't had a chance to start reading it yet, but I've had a flick through, and it seems pretty good.

The Creative Guitar series by Guthrie Govan is excellent.

I was just about to recommend this.
Check out my guitar quartet composition The Lone Wolf and you will be rewarded! With a live wolf!

I was going to recommend this (or The Complete Idiot's version which I like a little better). It's nothing advanced, but it's a good start, and a hell of a lot less than a textbook.
