going into advanced placement. You will have a black belt in music theory in no time and remember it forever because it will be part
of you when you play your guitar.
The Theory section of this book uses extremely simple language to explain the basics of music theory. The exercises require the student to write out the problem or example using staff notation, and then to find those notes on a guitar fret board diagram.
This book takes the student through simple interval examples to highly complex chords, and unlike any other workbook used in academia, the answers to all problems are found in the back of the book. All theory is made to apply directly to the fret board of the guitar, thus ingraining the information in both the head and the hands.

- What people are saying:
- I think one would be fooling themselves if they thought this book is fun. Some things, like Music Theory on your instrument isn't easy. It's a challenge that many of us take on because we know that if we can understand our instrument through music theory we will be better able to express ourselves. Don't buy this book if you are looking for a quick fix, it's a course of study where you have to fill in 100 pages of exercises to make sure you have memorized how every frick'n chord is built on the guitar. It's one thing to understand music theory, it's another to have a working knowledge of it and be able to use it like you use the language that you speak. I bought this book many years ago. I kept the filled in book just so I can show people one of the steps I took to get to where I am today. If you are serious about learning then I would seriously check out Mr. Arnold's books - their not the typical U.S.A. guitar edu-tainment books, they're in a class by themselves. If your looking for something entertaining or a book that just gives you a general understanding of music theory then you won't like this book. I have many music books and guitar books on my shelves. Mr. Arnold's books are definitely written for someone who wants to study on their own but get the same sort of education you would receive at Berklee College of Music, NYU, Princeton, etc ... I like others have had multiple correspondences with Mr. Arnold. I was very impressed by his teaching skills and dedication to seeing me improve. If you don't understand something about this book or any of his books he's an email away, how much easier could it get? There is a huge database of questions people have asked. All you have to do is read it and you will have many doubts and questions answered. My recommendation is to check out the muse-eek website first. See for yourself what is involved. Their books are directly linked to amazon so you can go back and buy them if you want. I've noticed recently that they've added 100's of videos for many of their books. These are free mates, you just have to buy one book and your into a resource that is amazing. Sorry for the edu-commercial, I've just seen some of the reviews and thought I'd give you my two cents on this stuff. J. Norlag
- I have found nothing better than this, but you have to know that music theory is tough stuff. I am sure I will be entirely a better person if I can get through this book. I will certainly be a better guitar player. I actually love it but find it hard and slow going. This may say more about me that the book, but there you are. I have been learning blues and folk guitar for 18 months and feel I need this stuff. I. Gray.
- I own this book and 1st Steps for a Beginning Guitarist and I find them both to be well written and aimed toward the serious beginning guitarist. I would say if you just want to learn a few chords, know what a scale is and have vague knowledge of chord construction then this is definitely not the book to get. What I'm finding though is I'm starting to see interval relationships by just looking at the guitar which makes my ability to tell someone what the 5th of any key is or other such interval knowledge. So one of the bi-products of this book is it teaches you how see interval and chord relationships on the fret board so you can use the visual information to find answers to any music theory related question that you might encounter. For instance I've been downloading some information on the internet about playing a blues riff and it talked about playing a 5th to a 6th on the low E and A string. I knew instantly what that was and could move it around to other strings and it made me understand and learn the blues quicker. I think one of the best things about getting any of Mr. Arnold's books is it allows you to enter their member's area for free. This is an incredible resource filled with 100's of videos and MP3 files to help with various aspects of learning the guitar. Some of the resources are completed and some are still under construction. For instance The Music Theory Volume One book has videos on how to apply major triads to the guitar all over the neck. I've just started on this but it seems promising. I think it's going to help me directly apply the information I'm learning to the guitar fret board in a musical way. Once again this is not easy, when I first watched the video I thought it was pretty overwhelming to learn the major triads all over the neck. I think the first video will probably take me a month to master. But I'm inspired to do this because Mr. Arnold shows in some of these videos how the major triad can be used as a music fill to sound like Jimi Hendrix. Since Hendrix is one of my idols this really made me want to learn the chords on the fret board because I could see a direct application. So I guess what I'd like to convey is this book is hard, not a whole lot of fun to do the exercises but I'm learning something that seems to be really helping and for me that's the trade off. I don't mind working hard if I get something back in return. If you are like that too then this is a good book to get. J. Stern
- I'll admit, I got into playing guitar just to learn the songs of my favorite bands. But, after awhile I got bored, and decided to really sit down and try to begin to master this instrument. Bruce Arnold's book is a great place to start, with Chord Workbook Volume One being a great supplement. In this book you'll learn (by endless practice) what notes make up what chords on the guitar, this process and knowledge may not seem important now, but if you stick with it, you might just start noticing patterns in guitar music. Knowing what notes make up the chord voicings you use, will, if you practice and stick with it, open up a whole new world of guitar playing for you: where you can improvise and solo and go off whenever you like, because you know what chords/notes go where. Give it time, and good luck! B. Meyers.
- This book has been the most challenging and rewarding I've come across as a guitar player - and I have spent hundreds on guitar/theory books. This is a workbook as the title states, so after a few introductory pages and some basic theory you are presented with nothing but empty pages waiting to be filled. One page covers one chord type and given a root note, a staff, and a chord diagram you are expected to fill in the correct notes. With some work the intervals become burned into your head - both their placement on the staff and physical location on the guitar neck. Bruce Arnold's website is and there you can find more information about this book and other related books. You may not need to reference it since all of the answers are in the back of the book, but it is still worth visiting. I can't recommend this book enough if you are serious about learning intervals, chord construction, and the neck of the guitar. T. Typer
- I found this book to be a great investment. It took me about 2 months to work through the book but now I have a completely different understanding of the music theory and how it relates to my guitar. I also took advantage of the publishers website which is stock full of information and free downloadable information. Mr. Arnold also gives email support for his books so that was an added value. He didn't even mind if I was asking question not related to the book. A really great teacher! T. Bradford.
