Music theory for guitar

Have you ever wondered how other guitarists can hear a song for the first time and learn it by ear like it’s a magic trick? Or how they add embellishments or improvisations to songs on the fly? The key to quickly learning how to play a song is understanding why music works the way it does. In Music Theory for Guitar, you’ll learn all this and more. By the end of the class you’ll gain a deeper understanding of how music works through the lens of the guitar.
