Steve Maase taught 80-100 guitar lessons a week for nearly 50 years, and was arguably one of the most gifted and under-heard guitarists of his generation.

One part memoir, one part instruction, and one part practical application, Music Theory You Can Use is a book that presents timeless information in a unique format that is both accessible and easy for most developing guitarists to apply to their instruments right away.
