On Theory

websitemusicfermataSince you and I are spending a bit of time wandering through some of the slightly more technical aspects of music, I thought maybe I should share this with you.  It fell out of my mouth many years ago.  And then later I read it elsewhere, so apparently it’s a useful thought.  I was asked, “Do you understand musical theory?”  My immediate response was, “Not enough to get in the way.”

They thought I was kidding.  No really.

Feel free to do likewise.
