I feel like most of them don't want to acknowledge that a world of music exists outside of teaching, playing in classic rock cover bands and jazz standard bands, classical music, session work, and music school and so they try and frame everything from that perspective.

Liam threads are always a gong show and I'm not offended that that one got closed. I agree that no one was being that aggressive though and I think with an understanding of the history of liam and this forum the perspective is different.

EDIT: And a history of this forum in general. Like looking back to when the regs were younger and way meaner lol.

Also I agree with Hail about it sometimes seeming like people here choose to know more about theory on paper than to actually learn to play well. I've heard music from quite a few regulars here that love to go on about theory and it isn't that great.

part of it as well is that a lot of the people that want to help everybody on here approach theory more academically and take it as a sort of hobby in itself. for me, i don't even try to pretend i have a fluent grasp on high-level theory because i haven't spent the time getting the chops in expanding the skills you'd get in university courses. i like to think i have a solid foundation, and i used to love tackling academic anomalies, but i have enough stress with the schooling that'll actually make me money to be able to stomach counterpoint exercises

there's a difference between putting down optimism and trying to dissuade somebody from fooling himself into thinking that getting perpetually wrapped up in pointless exercises will further his understanding of anything. i think you're doing the latter, personally.

i've always been fairly blunt, but i think i actually used to be nicer and more helpful when i was studying music in college and there was a connection there. now that i'm involved with music again in some way i've tried to at least say one useful thing here and there, but old habits die hard

well i meant as far as the dudes like jet who think liam isn't beyond help

which to his credit, he's been way cooler than 20T when he first got promoted. i think i was banned like 2 months out of 3 when that happened

I think the forum on general used to be more helpful, even if it was a bit more harrowing.
