    I have started a new video series teaching aimed at beginners interested in learning music theory. The first 6 videos with PDF files (tab and music notation) are here:

    The topics
    1) 12 notes in music
    2) The major scale
    3) Major chord and arpeggios
    4) Minor chord and arpeggios
    5) Dominant seventh chord and arpeggios
    6) Chords in a major key

    Have fun!
