Hey BjarturFO.. it's good to welcome another Viking to GMC ! smile.gif

Well I think a lot of us learn guitar and get to a certain level without knowing theory. The good news is that you can learn about it any time. The first thing I would do is learn what it is that you're already doing, instead of learning new things on top of it.

Do you know about the basic minor and major scale ?

Pentatonic ?

What about modes like Mixolydian etc ?

Welcome! smile.gif The Faroe Islands? The home of TYR! Great to have you here. Learning some THEORY is always a good idea. I"d start with the video lessons and learn as you go. Join the Video Chats as well!
