go into barnes and noble with a camera and find Music Theory for Dummies.


really though, if you really want a good knowledge of theory, just throw down the less-than-20-dollars for a book like that.. i think theres a complete idiots guide to theory also.

i vote pessimist.


edit: seriously though, i think a book would be the best bet. i learned to read music from one of those like $12.00 Hal Leonard teaching books. For theory, this site helps a lot, there's a lesson called "music theory: the beginning" and there's the MT Sticky, you just gotta look around.

hahahaha! i almost want to sig that.

no seriously, those books can help. ive never used one, but i do know theyre filled with factual information.

didnt mean to offend you.. and its not like i named the book series.

^Those books are generally written by professors of the subject, so it's not like they aren't worth the nickel.


Why don't you just go to the MT sticky though?
Don't tell me what can not be done

Don't tell me what can be done, either.



I love you all no matter what.

i found musictheory.net pretty helpful in the beginning

as well as UG's music theory for beginners

but if you want to get practice on reading notation,

look into getting a Mel Bay begginer guitarist book to teach you fundamental notes
