Yes you need to know intervals, they will help you learn any chord possible.

I would recommend looking up chord construction, how chords are made. Because in doing so, you don´t have to remember chords as shapes anymore, and can learn them as intervals which allows you to play (lets say E minor) all over the neck with only knowing which intervals makes up a minor chord, rather than memorizing a hand full of shapes over the neck.

I am sure there are lessons on this in the lessons section here on UG, otherwise i would recommend the site MusicTheory.net.

Here is a video, over an hr long, that will teach you why chords are made, how chords are made and how to write your own music. (Music Theory as it applies to Guitar) NOW.......

Some people do not like this guy, I for one find him EXTREMELY helpful. He babbles a bit, but who cares, he know how to teach and is easy to follow. I just bought all his videos on his website (~49.00) and they are work it. Anywho, here is his video .
