I noticed that whenever I pick up my guitar to play, I just play. I don't think about any theory whatsoever. I'll just start playing and if my playing starts to stay in the key of G, i'll keep playing in there but i won't think about the scales i use or anything.

Here's the weird part: I actually like the sound/feel of the playing, but I wish i could say that i think about the theory at every part.

Another thing: When i try to improvise or write songs, I'm usually always thinking about the theory.

Is anyone else like this? I can't tell if it's a problem or if i'm just crazy. It's been nagging at me lately because i'm trying to get a band together and if i'm not fully comfortable with my playing i don't know how i'll be able to show others my ability.

its not a problem... as long as you never plan on writing any decent songs, or as long as you never play any songs in any other key than G
Suhr Custom, Flaxwood Rautia or Grosh Tele thru
HBE Medicine Bawl Wah
Analogman BiComp
Texas Two Step OD
Fulltone Ultimate Octave/Fuzz
Boss CE-2
TC Nova Delay
SLO-100, 65 London or Bogner Shiva

i used to do that alot. I would just play random stuff in no specific key or scale. But now, altho i still dont know much in the way of theory, i do play in a scale now, but scales in a key is something im still a bit bad at.

Oh that's a relief. Why would i want to do something like that?
