Can anyone list some careers dealing with music other than actually being in a band and touring? I love to write music in Guitar Pro, but I can't necessarily play anything other than bass and guitar. I was wondering if there is anything I can actually do with that other than forming a band because that isn't going so well.

There's a slew of different things you can do relating to music:

Music synthesis
Music therapy
Music Production and Engineering
Music composition
Muisc education
Music business (a huge branch of possibilities)
Music journalism

...modes and scales are still useless.

Dude I got these strings the other day that couldn't be tuned to higher than 4 octaves below middle C then I realized that they were shoelaces and they weren't making any sound at all.

Well I mostly enjoy composing music, and I'm not so educated in recording yet. I'd really like to be able to write original pieces that aren't just elevator music or jungles for commercials. I was wondering if it's possible to actually make something of my music rather than work in a studio and such. If that makes sense.
