Guitar Theory Lessons And How Not To Get Dizzy With The Cycle Of 5ths

but in my humble opinion beginners are more than welcome!

To get the most from this guitar instruction I highly recommend having a solid grasp of the following fundamentals:

The difference between the intervals in a major and minor guitar chord.

The Primary Chords for the following keys: C A G E D.

Be able to hear the difference between a major and minor guitar chord.

Where the semitones are located in the major scale.

If any of the above doesn't make sense to you, don't worry! Click here for a great introductory lesson to help get you started.

This guitar theory lesson is divided into 3 sections for ease of understanding. Enjoy :-) And please feel free to contact me with any questions or feedback. I'd love to hear from you!
