I've been playing around 6 years, haven't progressed very much, only know basic major-minor scales, the pentatonic scale. And I always feel like a noob when people talk about arpeggios, chord progressions, etc. I'd especially like to start learning how to improvise.

I've tried reading and watching video lessons but everything always seems either too basic or too advanced.

Can anyone recommend me any good lessons to get me going on theory?
Or what exactly are the important things that everyone should know.
Guitar Grimoire, and Music Theory for Dummies. Believe it or not, its pretty good.

The guitar grimoire is useless as far as theory goes, it's got a lot of pretty pictures in it, a lot of scale patterns but as far as actual teaching material goes there's very little there.
