Music theory is often considered a difficult subject. “Idiot’s Guides: Guitar Theory” breaks down music theory for guitar and other fretboard instruments in very simple and easy-to-understand lessons. Content includes everything a budding musician needs to know about notes, guitar tablature, rhythm, chords and scales, and more.
