Product description

Product Description

Boost your ability and confidence as a guitar player by quickly and easily unlocking Essential Music Theory. No confusing words and no music reading required!


In 12 bitesize chapters you’ll learn about intervals, triads, major and minor keys, chord sequences - and understand how to apply them to your playing, improvising or songwriting.

I’ll use diagrams and simple, non-intimidating language to teach you in minutes, things which confuse some guitar players for years.

This book is for you if:


  • Not understanding music theory is holding up your progress, affecting your confidence as a musician and stopping you from becoming the guitar player you want to be

  • You’re a singer songwriter who needs to learn about chords, keys and chord progressions in order to write great songs (like you hear on recordings!)

  • You want to learn music theory but don’t know where to start

  • You’re a student who needs a crash course in music theory essentials to prepare for college auditions, entrance exams etc

  • You’re a beginner who wants to easily learn how music works as you take your first steps in learning to play guitar so you can avoid confusion, improve faster and learn more easily

  • You feel confused and intimidated by the ‘jargon’ you hear other musicians or YouTube teachers use

  • You ‘kind of’ understand theory… but you’re not really sure how well!


  • What will this book teach you about?


    In the 12 lessons you’ll find super clear explanations, practical examples and quiz questions on:

  • The Musical Alphabet (the only 12 notes used in all music!)

  • Tones and Semitones

  • The Major Scale (learn what it actually is…)

  • Major and Minor Triads (as used in most pop, country, rock and folk music)

  • Major Scale Intervals (major 3rds, perfect 4ths...what are they?)

  • Chromatic Intervals (discover what weird names like diminished and augmented really mean)

  • Major Keys (Parts 1 & 2)

  • Chord Progressions (start writing pro sounding chord sequences and songs of your own)

  • Pentatonic Scales (the most common guitar scales ever…)

  • The Natural Minor Scale (essential for minor key soloing in rock, pop and other styles)

  • Minor Key Basics (learn the secrets of awesome minor key songs and chord sequences)


  • How will you learn and remember all this? Easy!

    Each chapter introduces a new element of guitar theory. You get a clear but detailed explanation of the concept and multiple examples/practical exercises, FAQs and more to drive your understanding home.

    Test yourself using the quiz questions at the end of each chapter (answers supplied).

    To help you play certain practical examples there is also an appendix of common open chord shapes and barre chords at the back of the book.

    Plus, every chapter is also available to you (free) as an audio file so you can immerse yourself in guitar theory whilst at the gym or walking the dog! You'll find details for these in the book.

    You Can Do This … and without all the bull!

    'No Bull Music Theory for Guitarists' will make your journey as a guitarist much more enjoyable and way less confusing than mine has been! As a self-taught 18 year old guitarist, it literally took me years to figure this stuff out.

    I’ve taught the material in this book to thousands of musicians around the world both in person and via my website, and I can tell you this: Learning about music theory doesn’t need to be scary, confusing, difficult or something that you avoid doing because you don’t know where to start.
