we're all using "theory". anyone who can pick a couple note from a blues scale, and put them over a blues prog is using theory.
Jasons question, and it's a great question, is at what point does theory become useless. some great guys have responded to this. does it seem like each and all are suggestion the same thing...
to stop beating himself with the theory stick? so many times a guy is faced with an overwhelming situation, or a teacher he can't connect with, or just plain too much data at once.
all of the "theory" I have came by simple pieces that made playing more fun. or from a great teacher, and I "got it". I want more, theory is fun, but I'm being careful these days to work on pieces that are usefull or atleast supportive.
