About the Author
Hi there, Nicolas here, A few words about me. I'm a guitar geek by nature and I love to simplify seemingly complex yet interesting and useful subjects. That's why music theory has been a passion of mine for many years. I always found it fascinating. Putting together what I've learned in this field and presenting it in a book, in a way that hasn't been done before, and making it as good as possible to the best of my efforts, is what I'm really proud of. I hope to be able to inspire you to start learning music theory with my books, because once you dive in, so many doors will open for you as a musician, and you will start seeing and hearing music in a richer, more profound way. I'm all about continuous life-improvement and discovering your true-self so that we can find and attract beauty into our lives, be the best we can be, and simply maximize our happiness in this life as much as possible! Playing music and guitar, or any other instrument, is a big part of that. It's really one of the best ways we can learn to express ourselves and feel more confident in life! I wish you all the best experiences on your journey! Stay tuned, Nicolas guitaryourday.com

The book contains just the bare essentials, no terrifying deeply theoretical concepts, just practically usable things.
This book provided me with another point of view as a music educator.
Recommended for anybody from a beginner to an intermediate.

I found the explanations thorough and easy to understand. Scales, chords - how they are built and how they relate, chord substitutions, modes, inversions and extensions all became more clear to me and will give the aspiring songwriter a wealth of ideas to explore and have fun with.
Not that you need to be or want to be a songwriter to benefit. All players should know the information in this book.
Being such a broad and deep subject, it's impossible to cover all of the aspects of theory in a single book but this little gem certainly has enough that anyone wanting to get a grasp of the more important/fundamental concepts of music theory will be well rewarded.
I don't often rate anything 5 stars but Nicolas' book comes close to that standard for me.
The (very minor) faults as I see it are an occasional mis-spelling and such, maybe auto spell raised it's ugly head once or twice.
I want to re-read it and update this review as I didn't bother making any notes while reading but all in all I would highly recommend this book to anyone with no knowledge on the subject, or someone like me with a more intermediate understanding.
I'm sure there are professional players who could gain a lot from reading it.
I'll be looking at Carter's other books and hope their quality are as good as this one.
I'm very impressed with this book and want to help encourage more from this author so I also paid for a copy.
It's that good.
One thing missing from this book is the LIMDAPL trick with the Circle of Fifths. CoF is covered, just not that technique which is a quick trick for finding the chords in a key.
This book will be a great resource in the future for me to reference and was worth the few bucks.
