A good domain name?

I'm working on a website to teach music theory to guitarists. I know nothing about how URLs interact with search engines but I want to pick something that will lend itself towards a good ranking. What criteria makes a good domain name? They keywords for the site would be music theory for guitar, music theory guitar, etc. Do you have any ideas?

I was thinking about guitarfingerboardtheory.com or guitarfretboardtheory.com.

Will it be possible to get good rankings with either of these domains?

I'll probably leave this question open for a while.

Keep it easy to type and remember.

fretboard or something more specific to the dynamics of guitars or
frettheory
GFBTheory (Guitar Fret Board = GFB Theory)

Your names are not bad.  Whatevery you decide, keep it easy for people to type.  You can always ALAIS and acroynm as you build a following.

Have you looked to see what is available?  Many are bought up by people hoping to sell you the 'one' you want.

I've looked. A lot of the ones I thought about like musictheoryguitar.com are taken. I don't have a lot of money to throw at this...Thanks for the response.

No worries :)

Don't forget the lessor used .net, .edu, .org's etc... especially since you want to promote it as an educational site.  Although .com was once supposed to be reserved for commerce sites, I think that theory died long ago. :(

Good luck though!  

Avoid odd hypens and spaces, people just get frustrated typing those out.
