I'm looking for a tutorial (with clear steps) similar to the following article, but using ext4 and GPT partition tables.

Full disk encryption with Btrfs and multiple drives in Ubuntu · Bryce Nyeggen's blog

I will be doing a new installation of 14.04 LTS on brand new disks. I will be upgrading to 16.04 very soon.

I have an SSD and HDD. Both should be fully encrypted. Both should be accessible after entering a single passphrase on bootup. (A key on a USB stick would be acceptable too.)

The SSD will hold these partitions:

/boot (I assume unencrypted)
/ (root)
and all the usual directories in the Linux file system

The HDD will be mainly for pictures, audio, video, .deb files, zipped files, backups, etc.
