Always a popular reference.

Learn the notes on the fretboard.
Scale construction.
Intervals.
Chord construction.
Oh yeah.

you really wana start from the basics. First you need to learn your keys and scales which i guess kinda encompasses the circle of 4ths and 5ths. then you can move on to chord structure. specifically for guitar you definitely need to learn the notes on the fretboard, you major and minor chords and bar chords. like ^^^said www.musictheory.net is a great place to go

The very very basics that you should know before anything else (in my opinion) are the musical alphabet, then where those notes occur on your fretboard. After you know this, you can move into keys and scales.
Only play what you hear. If you don’t hear anything, don’t play anything.

That's... random. I'm not sure how that post fits any context

Well learning chords and the names of each would be a good place to start. So would learning the major scale.
And no, Guitar Hero will not help. Even on expert. Really.

Look for a book called "music theory for begginers" try amazon thy might have it.
It's a decent theory book and not too convoluted
