For beginer to intermediate scales & theory

Looking around for my stepson to find a decent website that can start out with the basics of scales, structure & theory and take him to the itermediate levels. One that has detail but not hard to follow.

Any suggestions?

Re: For beginer to intermediate scales & theory

I dont know the level you stepson plays at but the Doug Doppler DVD Diatonic theory and harmony is very very good..
its not a DVD to put on a watch all the way through, there is about 6 months + of lessons and hard work in there. sometimes you could put it on for 5 mins and have a months practise

He has played for a couple of years by ear but has no formal training. Wanting to master the art of "Shred" knowing scales, modes and theory.

i can follow it, but its more of a "here are some licks to help you play fast" thing i mean he goes over alot of stuff but really doesn't go into scales, theory that much just legato, arpeggios, hammer ons and pull offs, alternate picking stuff.

Re: For beginer to intermediate scales & theory

That's what I want him to stay away from...

He needs step by step process of learning scales, relevant theory and modes.

Re: For beginer to intermediate scales & theory

Believe me he's not bored or lacking fun. He just needs to find a quality tutorial/lessons other than traveling many miles that wont fit in with his school/work schedule to learn from a quality teacher.

Re: For beginer to intermediate scales & theory

In my 30+ years of playing I've found Jack Zucker's "Sheets of Sound" to be the best book available for improving both the depth and breadth of your knowledge. Take a look, but I wouldn't suggest it for a total beginner. It's perfect for an intermediate player though.
