My problem with music theory is that I always thought that a theory was something that might or might not be true so In music’s case I took theory with a grains salt.
That was my first mistake.
Now that I have time I’m studying music and music theory and comets find out that music theory is not full off optional avenues as in you can believe this or not.
No, music theory should be called music law as in this is the law and you can break it but you need to know what you are doing when you do it.
There seems be no end to music and theory. Nobody knows all of it. Nobody knows everything, at least I don’t think so.
I have been thinking of a way to describe my music studies. Do I play play ear, do I sight read, can I read at all?
I pretty much play by guessing. If it sounds good I play it. Even dissonance came be welcoming.
