After the technical routine was finished, I filled the book out with all of the Guitar Music Theory required to get the most out of each day's lesson.
Look, you don't need to memorize 10,000 ridiculous shapes if you know some basic guitar theory. The theory will set you free....and it's not difficult to learn!
