Excellant Overview of Guitar Music Theory!

This Podcast is a MUST listen to anyone who plays the guitar. Desi expertly covers why music theory for the guitar is important for the growing guitarist to learn. He points out the various elements of music theory such as scales, chords, progressions, intervals, etc. and then details what they are, how they build on each other, and in which order the guitarist should learn them. He uses his acoustic guitar throughout in order to drive home the points he is making... musically. The details Desi reveals in this brief Podcast will give the listener an excellant start on that wonderful journey of discovery called "music theory for guitar"!

Excellent Podcast

This podcast is great for beginners or more advanced players who want to develop a sound, fundamental understanding of guitar playing. Desi is a gifted teacher who can communicate important concepts in an easy to understand manner and teaches them so that they can be applied by anyone who wants to enjoy playing the guitar. The podcast is an excellent companion to his Guitar Theory text and videos. I look forward to additions to this series on iTunes.

Great stuff for guitar players
