I have tried many different ways to learn music theory, and always gave up because it was either too much information too fast, or simply too boring to hold my attention. This book really takes it one step at a time and makes it understandable for everyone. The author also includes examples that relate to popular music to make things more interesting. I'm not even half way through this book and have already learned so much. If you want to take your knowledge of the guitar and music in general to the next level, buy this book!
