The lessons are geared toward intermediate level players on up and can be followed on either an acoustic or electric guitar. Bass players can learn a lot from the instruction too. It is recommended that you begin with the first episode titled, What Is Guitar Theory, and then follow the lessons in order from there.

Customer Reviews

Compose and improvise your own music

A little music theory has really helped to improve my composition and improv styles. I'm having so much fun jamming on the Pentatonic scale with Dave, Neil and Jimi on my ipod, that I've put away all my other music books. Desi's cool and laid back teaching style makes music theory practical and the results are immediate. Much cheaper than music lessons!

For everyone

I would recommend this podcast to my friends, its for the beginner to the advance player. The content is well produced and very informative.

A Must for Guitar Theory!

I strongly recommend this for beginner and intermediate guitar players who want to understand a little more about what they are playing. Whether you are learning it for the first time or are using it as review, Desi Serna breaks it down amazingly! They're not short, but completely worth it! Besides, they're free!
