I've been playing electric guitar a few months now. I previously played piano but I never learned theory and I don't want to make the same mistake with guitar.
I am having lessons but mainly I just learn songs I like. I was wondering if there are any good books, or websites for learning the theory side. I live in UK so preferably something that delivers to UK if it is a book. PDFs are good too I can print. I know the basic stuff, a few chords and some techniques but I'm hoping to make a band eventually so theory will help.
don't laugh but i actually liked the complete idiot's guide to music theory. it's not guitar-specific but if you already play piano that shouldn't be a problem.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.
I'm a beginner too and im currently reading 'Harmony and Theory: A Comprehensive Source for All Musicians' by Keith Wyatt, it's not just about theory... it teaches to read music too. I think it's pretty good, I like it specially for the excercises. I think its important to put in practice what you read to really learn.
