    Here’s the wonderful thing about our guitar journeys, @Ron-N . We can do what we want in whatever order we want. The important thing is to continue to have fun and make progress.

    That having been said, if you spend enough time trying to learn music theory from books or free videos, you could eventually learn pretty much everything Tony teaches. There are 2 big differences. Obviously, the FW course will greatly speed your progress. Second, you may not find some of the simple, direct understandings that Tony presents anywhere else as every one develops their own way of seeing things.

    As @Michael-K73 points out below, “free” courses is a pretty misleading claim. No one teaches a thorough and logical development of music theory in free courses. The truly free courses will only teach a tidbit here and a tidbit there. You will find that after the free trial, you have to pay. Or, to see more videos in the series, you have to pay to join their Patreon community. There are a number of different ways the different sites and instructors set up their payment structure, but one way or another, you simply won’t get a complete, continuous course without paying.

    The most important point I was trying to make regarding Tony’s FW course is that you will have enough understanding to be able to learn from all those free tidbits. You will have a framework of music theory to plug these tidbits into and therefore fill out and expand your understanding.

    My experience is that Tony’s music theory course is the least expensive way to get to where you want to be. Most people won’t feel the need to learn any more theory but will have enough theory knowledge to understand the many free guitar videos they may watch in the future. And if someone wants to learn more theory after Tony’s course, they will have a foundation to build from. Most pure theory courses are too advanced to be of any benefit without this basic foundation. The problem is that you need some definitions and understanding to follow the first simple explanations. All the concepts and definitions are so interconnected that it is hard to make a simple beginning. That’s where Tony’s course is so unique. But hey, if the cost is too much, it’s just too much.
