Hey, there! If you follow one of the courses (Fundamentals or Style Courses), you will get the appropriate amount of theory along with the application all integrated together. It's important to keep your theoretical learning & knowledge on par with & at the same level as your physical skills & practical applications.

If one outpaces the other, then you have an unbalanced situation. Either you can play things that you don't fully understand or know how to use, or how they work. Or you know concepts that you can't apply & have no practical use for.

Having said that, I have a lot of tutorials aimed at covering music theory in great depth & detail. What's you skill level & desired style of music to play?

For example, this tutorial covers the basics of music theory.

This tutorial covers the circle of fifths.

If you are trying to learn how scales are structured across the fretboard.

If you are learning how chords are formed & structured.

If you are trying to connect scales & chords.

If you are trying to apply music theory concepts to blues.

Or to jazz.

The point here is that music theory is a big topic! :) So, it's best to know your skill level & area of focus, or goals in order to point you in the right direction.

Almost every tutorial contains some theory, at least enough to understand & explain how & why the lesson content is being taught. And the courses are a great way to accomplish that.

Hope this helps! Please ask more if necessary. Best of success!
