Start the War!!!

After seeing the discussion of why guitarists commonly don't know theory, it led me to thinking if more knowledge of theory effects what type of music people are in to. In the same way a film student will tend to have a more elaborate taste of film from the average person.


So to join the test simply state how well you feel your theoretical knowledge is (None, Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, MASTER) followed by one of your typical favorite artists and their genre.


Ill start:
===============================================


Theory: Intermediate
Artist: Aerosmith
Genre: Classic Rock

Hey, my thread 'What would you probably be doing if you didn't play guitar?' is great.

You give a bunch of levels of knowledge but don't establish what goes into those levels.
