    This is for someone who understands basic theory, knows how to derive the 7 chords from the major scale, knows that V resolves to one, knows what the circle of fifths is. Wonders what the heck is going on in jazz where they switch keys all the time :p
    It's excellent in my opinion, and I have seen people here asking about stuff that he lays out very nicely here. Hopefully those people see this :)

    Rick is really exceptional in both his technique and theory. He's kind of like the best unknown guitarist that I've never heard of before.

    Thanks for posting this. Rick Beato is a great teacher. He's got great ears as well, although he claims he does NOT have perfect pitch... Coulda' fooled me! ;)

    The videos of his son demonstrating his perfect pitch, PLUS ability to instantly recognize and name/sing all the notes of any crazy dissonant chord is pretty incredible. This is at age 7 or thereabouts too. He has a video about how he discovered his son had perfect pitch (he would always sing the Star Wars theme in the correct key without a reference :p ) and how he taught him that it was a Bb, not the Star Wars note :)

    I have a friend who is a Berklee graduate, and I am too, and we agreed that the quality of instruction in these free YouTube videos is as good as many of the classes at Berklee. This particular one would fit right into a first year theory class.
    He does advanced stuff too like the ones where he analyzes particular players and their style and licks.
