I picked up guitar about a year ago and been mostly self teaching, with a friend helping every now and then. We both don't really know anything about music theory, and I was wondering if any of you could suggest a good book for beginners on Music Theory? I would prefer to buy it online and have it shipped to me, seeing as the guitar stores around me have books from the 60's for like $40 or something ridiculos.

~Thanks!

Thanks, both of you. Turns out my roommate had a copy of Guitar for Dummies laying around. Hopefully I helps me out alot! I don't want to be the person who just learns tabs, I want to create my own music.

Also, if you're in the UK, or can import, get the rock school books. Not sure if they do them in the US.
