Alright so all theory is good to know, but which elements do you feel you have used the most in composition, live work or transposing?
It would have to be the stultification of the the cords near any non-floating or floating bridge with the metacarpals.

I would say being able to identifying the elements of a song that really make it work. Being able to analyze them and separate the heart of the song from the decoration. Then trying to apply those basic ideas and elements in new ways to my own original compositions and finding new ways to flesh them out.

I like to play with simple chord substitutions too.
chord construction, Scales, finding out key signature (CoF), and of course the basics: Intervals.
