Sorry but I am NOT impressed with this forum or the people in it. It seems that the vast majority of experts here are simply folks who have skimmed through "Music theory for Dummies" and now let it collect dust on their bookshelves so they can talk shit on music theory.

There are 2 types of people on this forum

1) Lazy people who dont WANNA learn music theory so they justify their half assed/short cut filled playing by spreading the gospel of "ANTI music theory:"

OR

2) They have read 3/5 of all the "Lessons" on ultimate guitar and somehow they think it justifies a solid foundation for music theory.

No matter which one you are,.......may god have mercy on your soul. You spread filth in these forums slowing the progress of people who have a true desire to learn music.

:::PRETEND THIS IS A RESPONSE TO AN ACTUAL THEORY QUESTION::::

No man no! You need to forget all that and just FEEEEELLLL the music

OR

No man NO...........::::insert easier topic said poster only knows about::::: You need to work on your intervals more BROHAM

OR

LAWL who needs theory man, Id rather just butcher chords all day, and practice shitty sweep picking riffs to play at guitar center.

Maybe you should tell us exactly how much musical knowledge you have.

If you're so adamant and confident that you're on the right path with your "unshakeable knowledge of theory", in which you suggest unlocks true creativity, why would you make the other thread in the first place? Surely, you are a master of scales and should have no problems writing music at all.

...modes and scales are still useless.

No, spelling doesn't matter at all.

If I'm not mistaken, The Beatles admitted to knowing very little if any proper music theory (couldn't give the source on that, heard it years ago from what I remember to be reliable), yet most if not all of their music is considered classic and is consistently listed by current bands as an influence on their own music.

Quit being a theory elitist. Knowing theory simply gives understanding as to WHY things sound good together the way they do (keys, notes, all that jazz). It doesn't take an intimate understanding of theory to just know that something sounds good. Just appreciate music and ignore the people you find so annoying or stupid.

Dude like 1/10 people here talk crap about music theory. Unleasing your nerd rage here isn't going to help so i suggest going to your nearest psychiatrist (if thats how you spell it)
#27
at first i raged. but now i'm just laughing my ass off. this is pretty funny, guys.

that guy that i unloaded on for having a poor attitude in that other thread? yeah, you make him look like a sage.

to the regulars (particularly 20Tigers): THIS is why i don't give anything in-depth anymore. i gave what i think is a pretty holistic explanation, and i get accused of knowing nothing about music by some novice who can't write a song and doesn't understand (with his modal expertise) why his kickass Eb mixolydian solo keeps resolving to Ab.

you think he's a theory elitist? you have to be a hypocrite or among the elite to be an elitist. he might be a hypocrite, i'll give you that much.

i WAS going to report you, dude, but i decided it'd be funnier to let you stick around for a bit longer and see how this plays out.

and yes, guys, this was me being NICE (in case you've ever wondered what it looked like).

sometimes theory is hard to understand, so some people use different ways to approach the guitar.

you could call these shortcuts, but everyone just has their own way. It might not be as "good" (classic, virtuosic, tried-and-true, academic) as your way of approaching the guitar, but some people just aren't into that side of music.

now cool your pooper and quit belittling us.

Yup. Pretty much this. Saw the other thread too. I also have gotten tired of nit-picky fights about terminology because I was taught a different system of theory than someone else, but that's a whole other thing.

OP makes broad generalizations. There are many here with a thorough knowledge of music theory. I am not one of them. Further it seems the knowledgeable among us are rather modest and, let me see, mature.

OP if you don't like UG then GTFO. Simple really.

To be honest op sounds like one of these tossers who think they are all high and mighty and think they are better than everyone else and that the sun shines out of their arse. OP, are you going to prove that you are better than everyone else or just fight from behind your keyboard?

he forgot a third type of poster here... the guy who doesn't get the answer he wants, saying his theory knowledge is amazing, and then flies off the handle because of it... oh no, wait, that's goober himself...

the most priceless part of it all is that I think he's not trolling, that he takes himself seriously

Grats, you've actually managed to come up with something further off-base than the OP. I will tell you that "your wrong", as you would say, but for another reason - listing 5 guitarists as the basis for an enormously sweeping generalization doesn't exactly constitute a coherent argument. This is of course also ignoring the fact that the premise of your post is completely flawed. Do you have any actual reason for not learning theory other than using a few examples in an attempt to justify your laziness without having to actually face it for what it is?

Of course, in my experience, people who end their posts with "\m/" are something of a lost cause.
