Hello, and welcome to Andrew's Theory Lessons!

Over time I am hoping that this will become a complete theory course that will enable players of all levels to learn all they need to know about theory to support their guitar playing.

If the list of lessons looks a little daunting, here is how I suggest you read them, starting with the simplest first. I have also categorised them in terms of dificulty level. Some lessons are in the planning stages and not yet complete, but I'll list those as well so that you can see what is coming next, and I'll keep this list updated over time.You can click on the titles to go straight to the lesson itself.

If you are more experienced, feel free to dive straight in to the lessons that interest you the most!

I'm also happy to do requests, so if there are any parts of musical theory that interest you and you would like a lesson on, let me know on the main theory board.
