Guitarists, do you know how the strings, frets, notes, scales and chords all work together to make music? Whether you're a total beginner or have been at it for years, there's a good chance you lack a basic understanding of the theory taught in this Homespun music instruction series.

Happy Traum, one of the world's best-known guitar teachers, demystifies the guitar fretboard and brings it into focus for learning players. He starts at the very beginning, providing the essential knowledge you'll need in your quest to become a better player.

This is theory that will become immediately applicable to real playing situations. Starting with chromatic and diatonic (major) scales, Happy maps out the fingerboard so you can quickly find notes in any key and start turning them into simple melodies. You'll learn what intervals are, how bass runs and chords are built and how they are used in songs.

In short, this introduction to music theory for the guitar will give you a whole new perspective and will reveal the vast possibilities that are hidden under the strings of your instrument... Watch "Basic Theory That Every Guitarist Should Know" today!
