like, aren't you supposed to be not a retard? lol

There is far too much that could be written in reply to that. If you learn some basic music theory and a scale or two, at the very least, you'll come to understand why music theory is so important in the creation of good music alone

Then there's the advantages of technical ability, improvisational skills, songwriting and arrangement technique etc... like I said, there's simply too much to type about

The first musicians were apes smashing bones on tree trunks.
Some musicians today aproach music as if its some rocket science.

Whatever works for you I guess, most people fall somewhere between those extremes...

a stupid question like that doesnt deserve an answer.

Utimately,

those strumming chords, playing drum beats, and such is really theory whether they know it or not. So theory just speeds up the process of learning the instrument. It's like anything else, you learn the science of it, it makes interacting with it easier. You can visualize alot easier too. Those local bands might have a tough time finding the right sound, but knowing theory will help you find the next step.

Never use internet speech, i.e. "lol," or spell incorrectly in this forum again. Also, never post again.

Music is the concatination of various sounds. Simple.

Not even started it yet, dear fellow. Might do it at the weekend.

This thread is lame, tame and as of now, dead. FEED HIM TO THE LIONS!
