Hey guys,
I've been playing guitar seriously for about a year and a half now. But my knowledge on theory needs much improvement. I know the major scales and chords, and a few things here and there. I know that learning theory is critical to anyone's improvement as a guitar player. My question to you is: Where should I start, and where should I progress from there?

Thanks!!!!

Most guys on the site will suggest that you learn pentatonic scales etc.
That's fine, but in my opinion you should start by learning intervalic relationships and the different chordal relationships in the major scale. Once you master those concepts you can go on to understanding advanced chords and eventually some more complex theory.
Don't listen to anyone that tells you that theory's useless.
Oh and I'd suggest finding a good teacher, they can help you learn a lot faster than you could on your own.

Just, no. Locrian should be treated like that gay cousin. Just avoid him cuz he's weird, unstable, and is attracted to the wrong thing.

Well, you could repeat the basics. And I agree with Samurai: intervals, major scale, chords in major scale. Pentatonics are just major/minor scales without two notes.

Well I understand how all of the chords are formed from the major scales, but I don't know where to go from there...

The Crusade articles are linked left, right and centre around here. I'd linked to them myself. They helped me, they can help you.
