Hey guys, i'm pretty new to these forums but i've been playing guitar quite a while now (about 3 years) and i can play quite well but the way my old guitar teacher taught me was quite bad and really screwed my playing up. He never taught me any theory and when it came to solos, if i was having any trouble learning or playing them he would just straight away skip it and say it was alright. So because of this, i find it quite hard to learn solos, from songs. Another thing is that he never taught me theory so i am clueless as to theory. I know a bit from the music class i used to do in school, but thats it. I kinda know all the notes on a guitar (for each fret i mean) but what i really want to know is Scales, solo techniques, Song writing, etc. I'm sure there are free lessons for these online somewhere and thanks in advance

You should check out the "The Crusade" lesson articles on here. They helped me a ton and are explained in a clear, concise way. You could also look up FreePower - he's a UG user and knows so much about everything related to music that it's astounding.

And have you figured out yet -

As stated above
Music theory.net (google it you should see it)

and UG

both these website have probably all the information you need about theory.
and if you have any questions about it theory. Welp, that is why we have the musician talk section

musictheory.net doesn't teach you how the theory applies to the guitar, but since theory is universal, it's still pretty useful.

At risk of sounding like his die-hard fan, ZeGuitarist has a column on the theory and practical part of playing the guitar. You can find it here: http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/ZeGuitarist/contributions/columns/

I found this really great, its broken down in a way that is really easy to understand and remember.

You do have to do every page in order for it to make sense though.

Start with the intervals section, go through those step by step, and then chord construction, onto diatonic theory and so on.

Then scroll down to topic tutorials for a bit more on application to guitar.

And have fun.
