Idiots Guide to Theory

Can anyone recommend some online resources, or books which basically explain guitar theory completely (like scales, modes etc). Yeah learning scales is no problem, but I want to know how to combine different scales to achieve certain sounds, what scales/mdoes/whatever go well together - and any other useful shit like that.

Ah yes, really amzing site. Wow.
I'm sure if I learned some basic theory and applied that knowledge to guitar scales, then I wouldn't really need to learn all that.

its like why bother to learn every chord position and name when you can learn how to build them and then save all that time

This is a pretty cool little site i've found:
http://members.tripod.com/~johncomino/

I'll head over to the guitar street some time and see what they have to offer concerning books.

I have firefox, too, and they both worked fine. If it's still screwing up trying copying and pasting the links at AskJeeves.com . That usually works for me if I'm having other problems.
