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.
Guitar for dummies is very good.
For my theory class, Alfred's Basic Music theory was suggested (saem company that does Alfred's basic guitar method)
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.
Or, on this site, just look up the crusade. Thats how i learned a good deal of my theory. Best of all, its free
