You might want to get worse at gay sex?

I don't think it is possible. You can play bad on purpose, but you can't really unlearn stuff.

couldnt you......like train yourself out of bad habits?


I dont know about unlearning scales and **** though.

Since your being unreasonably secretive, your either looking for attention or a horrible communicator. If it is option one, no one cares. If it's option two, then I'm going to assume you found a flaw in your playing and want to correct it, which I can probably help with.

Either way I need more information.

Now that I think about....you can forget things. I don't think that should count as unlearning though. As far as unlearning an instrument goes, the only way it is possible is through time. Maybe years of not playing the instrument might work.

Well, my favorite band consisted of self-proclaimed non-musicians. I'm starting to believe how well you can play determines what kind of music you create.

...
And once you learn "not to be a musician", have you not just learned to be a musician?

Your "non-musician" idols are musicians. They've simply taught themselves; whether they play dissonant noise or layered classical, they must have learned (completely unarguable); therefore, you need to do the same. Wanting "unlearn" is an inappropriate response to this situation (it's also absurd, but you probably knew that when you decided to make a thread for the sole purpose of advertising how intriguing your musical tastes are).

you can't unlearn.

most "non-musicians" are nothing of the sort, they're actually vey accomplished musicians , and because of that they know exactly what to do to ensure they stay outside the realms of what's conventional and accepted.

this is the most paradoxical thread Ive seen in a while



What's the paradox?

The only remotely paradox I could find was.

In order to know what you don't want to know you have to know it.

If followed TS's theory that is

just fyi, i had to force myself to alternate pick after picking predominantly upwards. Not sure it falls into the same boat as I was just training myself out of a bad habit. As far as unlearning things, maybe amnesia? I used to know a way to induce amnesia, but i forgot........
