I haven't really read the crusades so I have no idea. I doubt they cover voice leading though, so learn that!

Analyze music. Just knowing theory won't help unless you apply what you've learned. If you've read the entire Crusades articles and understood them to its entirety, you'll have little problem trying to analyze music.

That, and also compose.
If you play guitar, please don't waste your time in The Pit, and please instead educate yourself in the Musician Talk forum, where you can be missing out on valuable info.

i dont know if i should put this in this thread or make my own, but what new music theory should i learn?

(if i should make my own thread instead of posting it here tell me and ill delete this post)

i already know:

all the different chord structures.
(including altered dominant chords).
major/minor scale (including melodic and harmonic).
all the modes of the major scale, and all the modes of the minor scales.
most cadences.
all the intervals.
the circle of fifths.
relative/parallel major/minor.
arpeggios in different positions (like a B minor arpeggio over a G chord makes a GM7 chord).
different time signatures. (obviously not ALL of them, but enough in my opinion)
a few different chord substitutions.
(i might have missed some stuff, but my mind is going blank)

i havent learned voice leading and all that stuff because im not going to compose for choral groups or anything.
i want to learn more jazz theory, but i dont know what else....
what should i learn?

hmmmm
if your talking about downloading it, my computer is crappy, and i dont have any programs to dowload stuff. (i dont think, i suck at computers)
if you were talking about other stuff, tell me more


EDIT: i agree with the guy above me, the pitch axis theory is dumb. its not real theory.
if anyone thinks its real theory, thats fine, im just stating my opinion.
(i dont want to start some ridiculous arguement)

There is a difference between memorizing and knowing. You could spend your whole life with just the major scale and never master it.

Theory is descriptive, not prescriptive.

theory states 1+1=2 sometimes in music 1+1=3.

i see what you mean.
but when i said i know all that theory, i meant i dont just memorize music theory for fun, i actually apply the stuff i learn, into the stuff i play.

but you do make a good point though.
i know one guitar player that knows tons of theory, and all different scales, but he has NO idea how to play the scales on the guitar. he just plays powerchords and stuff.

Exaclty. We spend all this time trudging through these fairly advanced conepts, but what's the point if it's not going to be applied to making music. Make sure your happy with what you can do with the major scale before you move on.
