Music Question:

I've been playing guitar for about 6 years now, and consider myself a decent to good player, but I know jack shit about music theory (I don't even know chords that well, I just play what sounds right to me).

My question is, do you think it's worth the effort to learn some music theory? Side note: I'm a person who is terrible with the technical side of things, I'm more of a hands on person, which makes it difficult for me to comprehend stuff like this.

I know a lot of great musicians are in the same position as me (best example being thom yorke), so should I worry about this and put some effort in to understand music theory, or is it alright just playing by ear?
