I've just started playing guitar and would like to learn about basic music theory.

Is there any generally recognized excellent book(s) on learning basic music theory? What makes a chord a major or minor; how are they augmented or diminished; what's a third and fifth, how to turn a chord "upside down"; etc.

Somethign that's an easy read, but gets all the proper concepts accross would be great!

While I'm at it, if you have a recommendation on basic song writing concepts I'd love to read on that, as well.

Much thanks in advance!
