I'm currently in a band that writes songs without any music theory at all, and the songs show. I want to learn theory so I can write guitar riffs and solos that actually sound good and not just randomly selected chords and scales.

The problem is the only good place to learn theory from is an hour away and they have a very long waiting list. I'm wondering if their are DVDs, books, or websites that can teach me theory at preferably cheap (but not a necessity).

Ug is a good place to start.

umm i use Emedia guitar method alot for theory

all im learing for now is chords, scales, and key's... ill learn more next year or in the summer when i have time and/or a teacher
