I do take too much of a theorhetical approach which can never be good. . . I was sitting and decided I was going to throw theory out of the window and just do my own thing. . . whenever I did, all of my problems went away. . . including the block on my creativity. Maybe they are not the most choppy or shredtastic licks ever but they are from the bottom of my soul. . . My love of music has once again been renewed. . . Moral: Don't allow theory to encompass everything you do. . . unless it is an area like theory classes, books, or jazz band. . . later people.

Very true, I don't disagree at all, I feel the same way. But I use theory as a reference if I am stuck for a lick or run, or to connect parts of a song , etc.
