I’m interested in this as well, having seen version 4 has just been released. I’ve a basic music knowledge (how diatonic chords are created from scales, etc), which I apply when playing rock/blues. What level of knowledge and music style Is this book aimed at?
Here's a recent tFB thread: https://www.thefretboard.co.uk/discussion/170338/recommended-theory-booksAmongst the recommendations, there's:Eric Taylor's 'The AB guide to music theory' (parts i & ii) - solid, non-guitar based, cold, hard, theory...these should be on your bookshelf next to the dictionary and thesaurusMick Goodrick's 'The Advancing Guitarist' - one of the standard books...no tab...I didn't enjoy it muchI'd add Jon Damian's 'The Guitarist's Guide...' - I remember enjoying this one because it feels more modern and is written with a bit of humour...no tabThe last two are more applied and jazz-oriented...but that's where theory takes you if you turn it to 11. It doesn't mean you have to ruin all your rock/blues jams with whole-tone scales and maj7#5 arps I like that, every now and then, I can use some of this material to get me out of a rut and start thinking broadly again.
Love his vids....I’m not a big reader so not sure I can handle a book !
