Does anyone have a suggestion for a good book that could be found at a library or through amazon that explains basic music theory? I am currently working through the bound Hal Leonard guitar method (all 3 volumes) along with Guitar for Dummies (focuses more on chord progressions). I want something that will give me more background information and a better understanding of how the notes work (especially for guitar but necesarrily limited to), scales, etc. Suggestions are appreciated.
check out the guitar grimore... easy to understand has all sorts of goodies.
Crate V3112
Mesa Mk IVB

Ibanez SZ320
BC Rich Mockingbird Special X
Michael Kelly Patriot Custom

Too Many to list.
I recently purchased "Music Theory for Guitars" which is a Hal Leonard release that I'll be working through. "The Complete Idiots Guide to Music Theory" gets high marks around here, but I am unfamiliar with how much it refers to guitar playing in it.
