Everyone says learn guitar theory if you want to become better. This is going to sound like a straight up n00b question, but what should I do to learn it. I'm stuck on songs, so I wanna learn theory for a while now. What all should I learn? 'Cause I want to learn to play guitar, not just songs. I've been playing for abotu a year now, if that does anything

Start here.

Start at the beginning and actually read everything.

EDIT: Actually you probably only need to read the theory sections of each lesson, but it's helpful.

I started to take it, but had to drop it because my teacher was a nazi. She already expects everyonr in the class to be able to sightread music and have perfect pitch. On the third day of class, she looked at each person and told them to sing a note she gave them, and if it wasn't perfect, then you got a zero. I quit because I knew i needed to learn it at a slower pace.

I kind of take private theory lessons. It is just half hour, pretty cheap lessons, and I asked to learn theory from a Jazz Guitar graduate from Colorado University. It is nice because he goes slow, if I have questions I can ask them, and he applies it to the guitar.
