So by your logic minor scale is not a scale because it's a mode of major scale? They all share the same notes but playing D dorian scale sounds different than playing C major scale. Because you are playing D dorian scale and not C major scale if the chords resolve to D. Same with A minor, you play A minor scale and not C major scale when the chords resolve to A, even though the notes are the same as in C major scale. Just wanted to point out.

It's not algebra...


Laziness + Apathy = sweeping floors somewhere for minimum wage.

Apathy + Minimum wage job = potential wasted.

Minimum wage job + wasted potential = why choose this life for yourself?

It's not algebra. Only a choice of possible outcomes.

It's a choice to fully develop it, once recognized. Treating it like it's some wild night in Vegas, or some means to a mythical lifestyle, does the calling no honor. And the outcome of that choice is likely not the one imagined, but rather, quite the opposite.

If you want to be excellent at something, you should honor that and do whatever it takes.

If something is worth doing, then it is worth doing well.

I'd recommend learning everything you can about the language of music. That's NOT to suggest you need to have it all down BEFORE you start making music.

Sticking with one or two scales and 3 chords is like wanting to be an author, the next George R. R. Martin, and not wanting to go past learning anything other than your ABC's and sight words from elementary school.

Once you begin to truly understand the power of theory, you'll also realize that you're not always conscious of its use when creating music.

It's best to know as much as you can, to be prepared for every opportunity.


This post is 100% awesome.
