Thank you Mike, do you of any specific places that are not fill with a bunch of spam. Also most places sell products and I really don't want to pay.

This site is one place. The members lessons from Fretsource and Solidwalnut have some theory in there. Kirk always tosses in a bit of theory in each lesson.

There are other sites as well, I certainly do not know all of them.

Guitar Noise - Free Online Guitar Lessons is a fine site plenty of lessons by David Hodge who always throws in a bit of theory and there is an entire forum section on Theory.

Ricci Adams' Musictheory.net is a site I just found.. doesn't look like a spam and pop-up circus.

Music Theory for Guitar - overview Olav Torvund has spent a lot of time developing this site. Yes, he looks to sell books and such, but you have to remember that sites like these cost money to run. No pop-ups or spam.

Keep looking.. its out there

I've just developed crepitus in my right thumb. So that is the hardest thing about playing guitar at the moment. It's worse when I'm playing a 12 barre progression, sort of burning sensation and takes about 2 minutes to recover. Good job there is another guitarist to carry me now and again.
