what is the music theory and what does it teach you, like scales, solos, and to build speed???

No thanks.

Doesn't teach you speed, it helps you know what things go together and why. You can't improvise without a decent understanding of some scales to use and chord progressions and whatnot. Also helps with writing songs.

With speed just do a lot of exercises, learn some songs, that kind of thing. But make sure you do it slowly first so when you speed it up, you can still hear every note well. You don't want to be able to play fast but have it sound like you're raping a cat because it's so sloppy. And btw, that was a pretty basic definition of theory. If you want to learn a lot of theory it will probably take you years just so you know. It's not like a song where you may take a couple days to a week or 2 to learn.

The music theory? lol. It's not one thing. If you can read music, you know basic music theory. If you can count rhythms, you know basic music theory. Other parts of music theory are scale and chord construction, that is, knowing what intervals make up those chords and scales. Also, it includes chord progressions, or what chords sound good with others, and can build up tension, and then resolve.

It helps you understand and write/improvise/play in general better (most of the time).

It will make you understand music clearly. Unfortunately, once you know any music theory, you'll never listen to music the same way again. It's certainly a different way of listening, and you'll end up analyzing the song until you have it ingrained in your mind. Once that's all done, you can casually listen to it again.
