Plus, every chapter is also available to you 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. 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.

You Can Do This … and without all the bull! It's time to become the guitar player you know you could be.

Well Done

I’m an intermediate guitar player who has recently gotten back into playing every day in retirement. One thing I always lacked was a solid theory background, and have been committed to get that in order to be more of a musician vs. just a guitar player. I tried a few different books over the past 6 months and found The No Bull series is written just at the right level providing easy to digest chapters with good examples and short quizzes to test your comprehension. After working through the first two books, with practice of course, I’m finally starting to feel like I can look at my fret board and musically understand what I’m doing.

Great learning

I have been playing guitar covers for over 15 years and have never known where to start without expensive for time consuming lessons.
This book has helped me get in a quick read for the day and also gives me inspiration to learn more than I knew. It provides the essential steps in an “easy to follow” format! I definitely recommend this book!

Loved it

Perfectly explained theory. Written in simple language that is easy to follow and extremely well explained. By far the best beginner guitar theory book I’ve read.
