I really wanna' learn a good portion of music theory, and already am knowing of random scattered Bits of knowledge that don't really help my playing, at all, so to understand everything, we're do I start and how do I progress? Will knowing shit really even help my playing at all?
I'm gonna drive all night, take some speed. I'm gonna wait for the sun to shine down on me. I cut a hole in my roof in the shape of a heart snf I' goin' out west where they'll appreciate me"

Check musictheory.net
I go on there for ear training but I think they have some other good stuff that I haven't checked out. There's a guitar note trainer and and note reading trainer on there too.
The link in my sig is great. You can't go wrong with the lessons on UG, check the ratings though. And I agree with DoctrDrew116, muscitheory.net is a great site.

Quote by MudMartin
Only looking at music as math and theory, is like only looking at the love of your life as flesh and bone.

Swinging to the rhythm of the New World Order,
Counting bodies like sheep to the rhythm of the war drums
there is a lesson on UG in beginners called "learning music theory, the beginning" Great lesson. and thats the only theory i know. xD
