I hope I can be forgiven for posting a "competitors" lesson on this forum, but as Steve has said, use all the good resources you can find.

I've been working on theory for quite a while now, (too long really) and when I saw this, something "clicked" with me. I've still got more memorizing to do, but I thought this video really helped. I hope it helps you learn theory "backwards" like I do!

When you learn to play shapes, cords and songs before theory, it's sometimes hard to go at the theory and have it make any sense. When I relate the major (and Minor) scales to the fretboard, it becomes much clearer. From this approach I can visualize the scales and know how many sharps/flats/ major/minor cords are in the progression.  This combined with Steve's flash cards from the LMG course should be a great help.

Glad you guys liked it.
