Music Theory

If you're interested in learning the basics in Music Theory, check this site out: http://www.musictheory.net/index.html

Someone on another forum linked to this and I thought it'd be pretty helpful to anyone interested in learning the basics.
I've been checking it out for an hour or so... It's simple and very user-friendly. I recommend it.

Granted I got a whole lot of scholarships because I was smart and stuff, but yes, I could have done something else with my college years. :(

Eh, if you're passionate about it, persue it, right?

I never would've guessed you had a degree in Music Theory though. :lol:

We learned a little about that. (Very basic stuff) I think that's more in the Physics world. And musicians handle that stuff rather poorly.

Yeah. More emphasis on performing and less on history, theory or composition.

My main instrument was Percussion. Not really drums (Though I do play them) But Keyboard work (marimba, vibraphone), orchestral stuff, and my personal intrest was in traditional hand drumming and stuff.
