Music theory is a concept you know improves your playing, but it sounds boring to learn at the same time.


Theory also has a tendency to sound complicated and it’s hard to figure out how it helps you directly as a guitarist.


While music theory is essential to understand, it doesn’t have to be boring or seem like it was meant for a classroom and not the practice room.


With the right presentation, easy to understand concepts, and direct application of every concept to the fretboard, music theory is fun to learn.


This is what the Easy Guitar Theory eBook does.


It breaks down complicated theory into easy to understand concepts with examples you play right away on the guitar.


By doing so, you have fun learning music theory and see improvement in your playing at the same time.


From total beginners to experienced players, this book offers something for every guitarist looking to improve on your theory knowledge and application.

When I first learned music theory, I loved learning about scales, chords, chromatic notes, and everything related to theory.


But, the books I read and courses I took taught theory as a concept, or on the piano or other instrument.


This left me with a gap between my knowledge and using that knowledge to become a better guitarist.


That was until I applied every theory concept I learned directly to the fretboard.


From that day forward, music theory became fun and directly related to everything I played on the guitar.


This increased my knowledge of music theory and made me a better guitarist at the same time.


Because of this, the concepts in this eBook are directly applied to the guitar in every example.


This means that as soon as you learn anything about music theory, you’re shown at least one example of how to play that theory on guitar.


By doing so, you make a direct connection between theoretical concepts and the guitar.


This reinforces theory concepts and makes theory fun and applicable to the guitar.


As well, concepts and examples are presented for every style of guitar.


If you love jazz, rock, pop, blues, folk, country, classical, or any genre of guitar, the material in this eBook applies to you.


Easy Guitar Theory makes learning theory fun, engages theory with the guitar, and allows you to understand music more clearly.
