Learn the scale shapes and the basic chords, everything else will follow.

It's a tool to help you. If you don't know music theory, you'll probably just end up writing music that follows basic theory, but take a long time to write it because you don't already have a guide for how to compose an enjoyable piece.

Jimi didn't put any effort into anything

You sound stiflingly gay and I can't imagine anyone wanting to create anything with you.

I just want to be a jazz snob so badly and hang out with my other jazz snob friends and listen to Jelly Roll Morton while discussing some latin american boom author on french.

Person who know theory:

Person without music theory

Find me the theory guy that writes all the GOAT riffs please.

You know, instead shitting out some extended experimental jazz jam nonsense or if you tried to write "pleb" music and it would just come out like an overcooked Dave Matthews-esque disaster.

But no one gives a shit about Jazz, grandpa.

Music theory isn't for fags.

Music as a whole is for faggots.
>>
>>53411467
a LOT of people gives a shit about jazz, there are many jazz schools filled with jazz musicians all over the world and many jazz musicians of the past can sell out big venues (wayne shorter, herbie hancock, chick corea, etc.)

Btw, even if no one gave a shit about jazz (which is still completely wrong) it doesn't change the fact that it's great music that requires you to have some music knowledge.

Also, Brian incorporates a lot of jazz elements in his music. He taught himself theory so that he'll be able to write more complicated and advanced music.
>>
>>53411562

You can write it for both, bra.

You just don't have to be such snobby little weirdo about it.

Every people instructed about music theory would know that is bullshit

Name of the band though?

Sound of Sulfur I think. They were from a richie-rich town called Southlake in Texas and all of them had rich parents.
>>
>>53411791
Then I feel happy for not being trained in music theory, because Death Grips is the worst thing to happen to music.

Not even baiting, if you unironically like Death Grips you are an objectively worse human being than Adolf Hitler, and Kim Jong Un combined.
