Music Theory Workbook for Guitar Volume 1

Music Theory Workbook for Guitar Volume 1 (Intervals and Chord Construction). Composed by Bruce Arnold. For Guitar (All). Spiral, Theory & Harmony. All Styles. Beginning-Intermediate. Book. 208 pages. Published by Mel Bay Publications, Inc (MB.20630).

ISBN 9780786670703. All Styles. 9 x 11.75 inches.

This book is an excellent learning tool for both the beginner who has no knowledge of music theory, and the intermediate student looking to improve their understanding of the guitar fretboard. An easy to understand music theory section is included especially for the beginning student, which sets forth the basics of music theory, thus laying the foundations for the exercises. From the most simple construction of basic intervals to the most advanced chord structure, all information is consistently applied to the guitar fretboard. The exercises prompt the student to write out an example using staff notation, and then to find those notes on a guitar fretboard diagram. All answers are included in the book, enabling the student to check his or her own work.
