Hello, first post here.
I’m not a beginner player, but I am a not very familiar with theory.
I gave theory a go a few times in the past, but got bored because, as a by myself garage player only, it didn’t seem very important. I played everything by ear(20%) and by memorizing(80%).
Now, I’m getting older and my memory is not what it used to be- playing moderately complex songs by memory is becoming very difficult.
I’m guessing that if I understood WHY a thing is played the way it is played, then the need to rely on memorization is reduced. Is that a true statement?
If the answer is yes- can anyone tell me the best way to go about learning theory using the resources this site? For example- what should I learn first, second, third etc? Or does sequence even matter.
Thanks for any tips and/or guidance! 🙂
