Thread Name: Scared of Music theory? Faggggedaboudit!
Subject: RE: Scared of Music theory? Faggggedaboudit!
Great thread, Rick. It has prompted me to go public, come outta the closet and admit, after 40 years, off and on, of playing the piano, violin, playing in orchestras, with a family of musicians, taking private lessons for the first 10 of those years, I still cannot get it in my brain how to tell what key someone is in AND I don't remember any of my teachers telling us how. I know it seems simple and I've been told how by my dad, sister, and brother, and I think you, but it just isn't there. I've even looked online. Anyway, anyone have a dead easy, simple-stupid way to pound it into my brain?
