So... I want to learn theory as I think it will help my playing and my song writing/improvisation skills. So what should I learn first. Can you give me a linky to a good simple theory site? Or even better could you give me a crash course to get me started?

the pit is definatley not a place to post something like this...however the electric guitar forum would be a much more helpful/serious place. But because you are here: you best lube up....it will make this much less painful for all parties involved

just learn your fretboard first. its the only way you can use your theory for your guitar. also learning chords and scales are part of learning theory so go on the mainpage of ug and search up some lessons. Some are actually very helpful

I can read music, and I can honestly say, in seven albums, countless gigs, numerous TV appearances and various bits of session work, I've never once needed to.
