BookThe Practical Guide to Modern Music Theory for Guitarists: With 2.5 hours of Audio and Over 200 Notated Examples: 3 (Guitar Technique) - Mr Joseph Alexander

(Review from the US store):

This complete and PRACTICAL music theory course for guitarists takes you on a journey starting from simple major scale construction, it's 3 and 4 note harmonisations, and common chord sequences, to a massively deep and structured dissection of all the modes of the major scale.

The 7 modes are broken down into their constituent intervals, triads, arpeggios and Pentatonic scales, with each theoretical approach discussed and analysed and bought to life with over 200 notated examples, licks and professional backing tracks. 

Each musical concept is explained in clear English, with advanced substitutions and methodologies presented without any academic language or confusing 'muso-speak'.

After the many soloing possibilities are discussed for each mode, the author's favourite sounds are given as a concise list of recommended approaches. This will save you many hours of practice time, and provide solid starting point to explore the best of each tonality.

Throughout the book, many songs which use the ideas being described are linked to via youtube so you can hear the musicians you love applying the concepts in popular songs.

The author makes this publication available as a free, full colour .pdf when you buy the Kindle or Paperback edition, allowing you to print off the exercises and to make the book accessible to readers with earlier Kindle models. Details are inside.

All in all, this is a structured and practical approach to learning the most important aspects of modern guitar music theory in a hands on and musical environment. The emphasis is on playing the theory, not just knowing it so it will keep you creative for years to come.
