100% feel. I know absolutely no theory, exept for a scale I don't know the name of or something. Usually when I play guitar, I improvise alot, then take the good riffs I get from those, and use them for songs or for more jamming.

[QUOTE=Zertonshfits]who here knows what they are doing and who just knows it sounds good?

Im more of a feel person. i like to just wing it. besides it makes it more of your song. but i do know what im doing when i play. i just need better gear, cuz my gear now sucks ass. good question though.

i put that i'm a "feel" kinda guy... even though i actually have a couple years worth of music theory classes under my belt, as well as several years of private drum and guitar lessons.

some things you have to figure out for yourself. half the shit i write i'd never be able to come up with by thinking theory.

nothing beats experience.
