Finally decided to actually learn theory and stuff since I can play by ear but I have no clue what actually Im doing in techincal terms.
Been looking for some guitar theory books and I stumbled upon this guy.Ive read a lot of reviews and they all seems sooo positive.

I hope I dont break rules by linking this stuff here:

Im thinking of buying ''Guitar Fretboard Workbook''and ''Chord Tone Soloing: A Guitarist's Guide to Melodic Improvising in Any Style ''.
So yeah, I hope someone in here has them and can give his view on Tagliarinos stuff.

Thanks.

I've seen worse. I don't think its as bad a job of TEACHING than most every other book out there. But, in all honestly, it has so many roots in traditional methods I find it as bad as others. If you've seen me around here long enough, you'll find that I consider traditional ways superfluous and a waste of time. I teach using my own ways, so I'm honestly biased towards my own ways, for that reason.

Best,

I've taken a look at those very same two books (I've been playing guitar for 25 years and other instruments even longer - I wasn't looking to be "taught" - just enjoy reading about music).

I think you'll learn at least something from them. He's a good writer with an informative and relaxed style. Yes, the material can be had elsewhere, but the fact that he presents it in organised lessons that you follow in order means that you progress with your theory knowledge while bringing your physical technique up to scratch at a decent pace.

Use these two books to get a basic feel for some of the "nuts and bolts" that underpin western music and the six string guitar, but make sure that you then expand in your rhythm, harmonic and lead playing, moving away from scale boxes and power chords.

Hope this helps.
