The Guitar Wheel is an all-in-one quick reference guide and study tool for music theory and for all musicians and for all instruments.
The Guitar Wheel is a visual two-sided music theory tool covering every musical key. The curved guitar neck design on the Guitar Side allows for easy visualization of theory on the guitar. Flip it over to the Piano Side for more in-depth music theory for piano, or any instrument, and even vocalists. It is an excellent study tool and a songwriting/composing tool for schools, colleges, and universities. Instructions include Spanish and German translations.
Guitar Wheel was created because musicians want and need an all-in-one quick reference for music theory. The Guitar Wheel is also more convenient than other options. There aren?t hundreds of pages to thumb through looking for answers. It?s always on, you don?t need a power adapter or batteries. And if you accidentally spill your coffee on it, just wipe it off and it?s good as new.
The Guitar Wheel has two sides which display music theory in a unique way. The Guitar Side helps guitarists visualize how music theory works, the way many guitarists are used to thinking about music?on their guitar fretboard! The Piano Side is a sizable music theory reference for any musician. Included on the Piano side are a piano staff and piano keyboard as supportive reference.
Studying music theory in any key is made possible by turning the key selector tab. Find quick answers to questions on the go or study it to better understand music theory. The more you look at the Guitar Wheel, the more ?jumps out? at you and the mysteries of music theory will begin to unravel.
?One of the most outstanding educational resources.?
-Guitar World, July 2009
?All the theory you need in one convenient place, and best of all it fits in your case.?

I originally saw an ad for this in the back of a guitar magazine. I normally don't pay attention to these kinds of ads, but it caught my eye. The Guitar Wheel is a collection of different music theory concepts for both piano and guitar organized in a way that will allow a musician of any level access to everything from the most basic musical concepts to fairly advanced ideas like chord inversions. On the right of the wheel is a Key Selector that allows you to synchronize the wheel to the key signature of your choice. One side is designed to visually represent a guitar fretboard, the other is more general music theory and uses a piano as its main reference.
I'm very impressed with the amount of information that they have been able to pack into such a small and lightweight item. I have binders full of ways to show the information that is represented so concisely on this wheel. Some of the useful information on the wheel:
-Major Scale w/ degrees and notes
-Forming all Diatonic Triads (in barre form) for a given key
-Tonic Chord Inversions
-Intervals (including concert pitch transposition)
-Treble and Bass cleff staff diagrams
-Major/Minor relative scales (along with pentatonic scales)
The Guitar Wheel comes with a nice full color 2 page sheet showing you the basics of how to operate and view the information presented to you. It also comes with a very well produced DVD that is informative and just long enough to keep your interest. (I'm actually in the TV business, so I'm a pretty hard critic)
Every time I've picked this tool up, I've seen something new that I didn't realize connected in some way to another area on the wheel, or to a musical concept even.
The product is a bargain. I haven't seen something this well put together as a general music theory cheat sheet before, and I think that it is a tool that any musician should have with them at all times. It took me years of work (on my own) to collect a lot of the concepts shown in the Guitar Wheel using the internet, paying for expensive private lessons, and discussing and debating theory with other musicians. I feel a little disappointed that I didn't have one of these things when I first started playing.
