I've been micro tuning my guitar for years despite the basic layout of a guitar being based on a western scale.

Okay, so why don't you enlighten us? How do you tune your guitar, and what sorts of things does micro tuning enable you to play?

Re: The Theory Thread

Sorry to hijack from the popcorn worthy microtuning discussion.

I haven't had time to go through all that sheet music and organize it much really yet. All my homework assignments and crap are in there too. Man, could I use a refresher on a lot of stuff.

What I was thinking though was starting at the very beginning and working through just like we did in college. The music history/listening courses basically went along with the theory stuff, etc. so we could have stuff to listen to as it is being discussed. People could ask questions, etc. There are definitely some people in this forum that could answer any questions we would have and I think would be a great source of information and learning. The beginning stuff may be pretty easy but may help a lot of people who didn't take courses like these when more complicated stuff is discussed. It is also nice to listen to pieces featuring the theories when they were first being practiced. I wish I had done more critical listening like this in college. I really want to learn a lot more about composing etc.

I'm not talking about starting at chant btw. Like baroque era maybe? That may be too easy for some of you guys but I'm a drummer who until recently hadn't really touched a piano or thought about theory since about 2005 so I probably forgot a lot of stuff and could use some refreshing of my memories.

Re: The Theory Thread

I'm taking Music Theory I at University, and I've really been enjoying learning about the different time signatures/meters. It's pretty cool to mess around changing between a 4/4 and a 12/8!

Frank Zappa was a master at composition in so many ways, and his amazing use of time signature changes was one of them. Man, that guy was a true Beethoven!
