Great place to start.

I picked up guitar two years ago with some highschool music theory under my wings however many moons have passed since those days. This book demystified a lot about music theory, and has changed how I see the guitar. If you are starting out or are interested in music theory this audiobook is highly recommended. The PDF is excellent supplement and aided in my learning.

Enjoy!

Confusing for a "beginner" on music theory

I've been playing an instrument and singing for over 30 years but have been longing to develop my music theory knowledge. I found this book extremely confusing as it quickly jumped into things I just couldn't understand without looking online for help. I found a different book on the same topic and haven't had the same experience at all.

A bit hard to follow in audio format

Having spent two decades in the music production world, I purchased this book as a refresher. And I must say, the idea of a beginner starting with this audio book is concerning. I found it hard to follow and can't imagine a beginner ending up anywhere but confused.
