Learning to play guitar is one thing. Knowing how music works is another. If you want to BE MORE THAN A CASUAL MUSICIAN, you need to learn both. Knowing how music works will make you a better player, composer, and improvisor.


Lotus Music products present music in a VISUAL way. This graphic approach to instruction reveals important music concepts in an easy-to-understand way. These books and apps are thorough, but NOT ACADEMIC. They show just what you need to know in order to understand what online teachers are talking about and how to COMMUNICATE YOUR IDEAS to other musicians.

MUSIC THEORY for the Guitarist

– See how notes, chords and scales work together to create music –

None of this Works without Practice.

The resources that Lotus Music offers will help you learn how to improvise, play scales and chords, and reach your potential as a musician. These materials are especially helpful in understanding what the heck all those online teachers like Rick Beato talking about. That is likely the greatest value these books have. That's because you can't write poetry unless you can speak the language. Knowing musical concepts and being able to apply them to your playing and composing, will get your where you want to go. With a little knowledge, a good ear, and a lot of practice, there is nothing that will keep you from becoming the guitarist that gets invited to gigs, plays with friends, and can hold the attention of a listener.
