Since it is the summer I would love to start learning some guitar music theory. I have been playing off and on for a year or two now and I would rather like to start getting serious in learning. I couldn't find any sites that would put this information into a clear chronological order, so I was wondering if it is wise to purchase those books that I see on Amazon.

Any good sites out there?

What books do you recommend?

I play metal btw

Fingerboard Theory For Guitar by Mike Christiansen
Music Theory: Everything you ever wanted to know but were afraid to ask by Tom Kolb

the complete idiot's guide to music theory is supposed to be really good as well. I skimmed through it one day at the book store and it looked very nice.
“Science cannot solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are part of nature and therefore part of the mystery that we are trying to solve.”
