Finally! A Music Theory Course You Can Easily Understand

The best way to learn music theory is to learn it on your instrument. That’s why our music theory courses are taught on the guitar. All of the examples and explanations are given using the guitar fretboard and with the guitarist in mind. This will allow you to learn much more quickly than through traditional methods, because you’ll be able to easily visualize everything based on your instrument. It will also allow you to use the information you learn in practical musical situations instead of being left with unusable theory. So not only will you learn the theory, but you’ll be shown musical examples for everything on the guitar, and be given practical ways to use the information in real world situations.

If you’ve ever felt overwhelmed and confused trying to learn music theory, this course is for you.
