I'm looking for an online guide to music theory. Like, I know I won't get anything to great without paying for it, but does anyone have any suggestions? Perferably something that covers all the ground (scales, modes, intervals, etc...). I'd greatly appreciate any help. Thanks!

Start with the FAQ that's stickied here.

Edit: And you definately don't need to begin with modes. Shelve that idea away for several months (or years depending upon how slowly you want to learn).

I've already looked that over. It's not that helpful...


Do you understand everything and can you apply everything mentioned?
If not, then you should read it a little more closely.
Go to the lessons page, there's a great theory lesson there that's like 50 pages long. It goes through everthing.

I'm pretty sure a link to it is in bangoodcharlotte's sig.
Signature? What's a signature?

I don't know that user, but it's in my sig, so all is well.


Haha I thought I spelled something wrong in there...

Couldn't figure out if it was a missing g or extra t, so I just left it that way

The theory sticky is extremely helpful, however "just looking it over" isn't going to achieve anything. There's a lot of information in there and it's a good framework for your learning but the key word there is "learning". You can't just read an article and understand it, there's a lot of old fashioned studying required to get to grips with theory.

Just don't expect to learn this stuff overnight, it takes a long time.
