i dont like that site studybass too much, they seem to throw way to much at me without explaining it all first

so yes, what do you think is the best (and preferably, easiest and fastest) way to learn theory, what sites and books should i be using?

Buy "The Idiot's Guide To Music Theory", it will teach you a LOT.

Dude if i were you i'd look more at bands like Dragonforce, Dragonland, Dream Theatre and Power Quest, most of their songs are either in E major, A major, C major or D majhor

Look for books at a library. We have one we bought from a local library. "Harmony and Theory in Western Music" I think it's called. Did me worlds of good.

That book is EPIC, made me a much, much smarter musician, in almost no time at all. If you cant afford lessons, try to jam with friends who know theory, instead of self taught guys, because they can also be an excellent way to pick up on theory.

Agreed, Much better than the music theory for dummies book.

Essential Music Theory for Electric Bass is another one to check out. Its in the Mel Bay series--not as comprehensive as the Complete Idiots guide but looks to be rather promising.
