Yes it is.
Same here. Trombone from age 13-18, Piano from about 10, Recorder from 11 and I could even read on guitar but my reading of standard notation was weaker on guitar than the others. Proof positive that if you don’t use it, you’ll loose it. I’ve added working on getting those skills back to my practice routine. 15 minutes of the Modern Method For Guitar each day. Maybe I’ll even get book, 2 and 3.
I have on a couple of occasions seen the conductor for The Alabama Symphony Orchestra conduct an entire Beethoven symphony with no sheet music. So how important could reading possibly be?
Seriously, His name is Justin Brown, and he must have a phenomenal memory. His Beethoven concerts were THE BOMB.
Yeah, those guys do exist. ...Then there’s the rest of us who need all the help we can get. If some theory and the ability to sight read can give me an edge, I will take it
Roundabout by Yes
It's in Em but the very last chord is an E major.
Guitar players that know theory is called "Jazz Guitarists", since they got no sense and play the Jazzmaster you should not listen to them.
I may spend time on music theory when I retire. The mind is a terrible thing to waste.
Must be another bit of humor here.
"So funny i even forgot to laugh..."
Does this guy look or sound like a 'Jazz Guitarist'?
i can guarantee you that he knows 'music theory', though.
I've always loved this about And I Love Her, but isn't it even weirder? If you look at the song as being in the key of F, the outro reads as Gm to F, or ii (two minor) to I (One Major). Perfectly normal, even for jazz. The last chord is D Major. Make THAT fit! Of course, it fits quite well, and quite dramatically.
Classic Picardy third.
In context to the genre of music I most associate with you, that actually did make me laugh
EDIT: I mean your response did.
I’m still working during lockdown. I’ve got a fully equipped office built into our house but even so, work is more sporadic and now because my clients are also working from home and not as well setup as they are in their regular offices. Anyway, since I’m not able to leave the house, I’m making the best of it and I’m determined to get the most out of my practice.
Just this week, I’ve really structured my practice time. I’ve got practice routines assigned for Mon-Fri. I’ve got some time dedicated to song learning, time for technique, time for ear training and 15 minutes per day on sight reading. I’m determined to get that skill back. I’ve dusted my copy of “A Modern Method for Guitar”. I’ve bought that book 3 times over the last 40 years and I did actually get a reasonable way into it when I was 15. My weekend practice isn’t as structured but I can adjust as necessary.
Joe Pass from way BITD... HE's a 'Jazz Master', but he's playing a Fender Jaguar here.
Close enough for ya?
Proves it's the player!
A patron gave him his 175 a few years later.
Captain Picard agrees.
Ricard used to agree with me... maybe even a bit too much.
There's nothing like having a nice pastis as the sun goes down in the south of France.
Every once in awhile, i do miss a few of my former vices.
Pastis and vanilla clove cigarettes especially.
Don't know if it's been posted yet, but check out Robben Ford here.
I don't think he meant to do it, but he takes you on a trip through music theory.
You have an amazing amount of self discipline. Respect!
