Theory Lessons

Music theory is the method of analyzing our musical system & describing relationships between tones. The true outcome of this theoretical system is...

  1. the naming of everything (tones, relationships, chords, etc.)
  2. sonic descriptions (how tones relate to one another when sounding - in our hearing).

The accepted traditional music theory found here is but one of many approaches to explain, describe, & name our musical system. And, a good one. It is not a creativity killing area of study, rather, an enhancement to our understanding as guitarists.
