Music Theory

Theory informs practice, practice informs theory

This part of the site was hacked and spammed years ago. The remaining content has not been restored.

Giving guidance on music theory as embodied in guitar practice.

Here I attempt to show how music theory informs music practice, and music practice informs music theory. What this means is that you can obtain guidance in your guitar playing from theory, it will improve your practice. Conversely, theory is useless if it is divorced from what musicians actually do. In that sense, theory must be kept up to date with current practice in the guitar world.

My own approach to this I have branded as Metafrets. I have written some dry and technical books on this, and they are available for download. See http://www.similkameendreams.com/node/26 (link broken, sorry) and http://www.similkameendreams.com/node/30 (link broken, sorry).

Bear with me. I am just starting this enterprise, and many links will not be filled in. If you need more information, there is no shortage of deeper explanation available on the Internet at other sites.
