...says there are no local classes available to him, that he can't find anything near that he can take. He lives in Norway.

He's really passionate about music, and I know he'd do well to learn theory, so what is the best way for him to get started learning?

Online link suggestions? Really good books? I know a live teacher is invaluable, but what is the next best option?

Thanks.

This is terrible advice. Even worse than the useless dry, sarcastic comment I made.

ZeGuitarist's Ultimate Guide to Guitar. Just google "Ultimate Guide to Guitar" and it will be like the first thing that pops up. It's free, and it's really easy to understand.

Best advice I can give as someone learning guitar + theory all by myself, is just DO IT. go to musictheory.net, learn a bit of theory on scales or whatever, then USE what you learnt to do something, the best way to learn is by doing..

so, like learn how a scale is made then try to work out the 5 pentatonic scale shapes yourself, thats what I did... it took me ages to work them out even though a quick google searhc could of saved me AGES... but it helped me learn theory..

well thats what I think anything..

www.musictheory.net <-- great site!
