k so i never had a guitar teacher, so i know NOTHING of guitar theory, i just learn songs by tabs... could some one teach me guitar theory or tell me a good site... also whats the key of something, like a song....

and please dont call me a guitar noob, i have really good technique i just suck at theory.

I took 2years of theory.

Trust me you'll read it for an hour get bored and go back to being a noob.

We'll choke on our vomit and that will be the end

We were fated to pretend
Why do we even have a theory sticky?
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

at least i get that impression alot

i always read the lessons then if i am confused ask questions lol.
song stuck in my head today

You don't need theory to play music but only if you're blessed with a fantastic set of ears. Theory was used to document what was done but can be used for learning also.

Since you're reading tabs you can use the theory to see how it was arranged. Soon enough you'll recognize stuff like I-IV-V progressions, chord substitutions, and key changes to name a few.
