Finally, some truth!!

Dude....I really liked that one song where you played 16th notes on the low E string. And that one where you did the same thing on the D string. Wicked.
Yeah ... I was born Asthmatic ... that's a mega 'it' ...
That is very funny ...
What is "it"?
Caught in a mosh?
Maybe itter than it.
there's an interview with Steve Vai, who confesses: "i have very little natural talent.. i had to really practice a lot"
Steve f**g Vai
I've never been the type to just pick up songs by ear quickly despite hearing them play in my head exact. There is some disconnect between hands, instrument and brain going on.
There's something to be said about putting in hard work for something (someone) you love. I'm a fourth generation musician and I wouldn't attribute my musicality to "being born with it" more than just being exposed to great music and great musicians early on in life. Somethings have come naturally and some things have taken a ton of work. Us guitar players are travelers on a journey that has no destination. We will always strive to get better, do better.
No natural talent here, but I was born stubborn so when I decided I had to play guitar it was gonna happen.
I was there.
I sold all of my musical equipment that night and now just travel along trying to catch all of his shows around the country. I make a living by selling my macramé bracelets that bear the "nuk su cow" chant.
I'd like to order 4. Do you take PP?
No. But, I will barter for some gluten free hemp seeds and a bottle of mad dog.
Man, I think everyone is just having fun. I wouldn't sweat it.
It's like a poke in the ribs and giving you shi..... for whatever they can latch on to.
Now, here's a noogie.
On the other side of the coin, maybe he didn't have any interest in playing with an orchestra. If you're doing fine without theory, and you don't have an interest in it, why spend the time to learn it?
Man, I have been playing for under 3 years, and I'm learning the modes and tons of other theory. All this does is improve my playing AND my ability to play with others - and expands my musical language.
Why the heck would you NOT want to know what you're doing? Even if it sounds ok, it's still better to know. It would be like someone saying, "Errr...I can speak really well, and I ain't never tooken an English class." and bragging about it to a bunch of English professors.
That's great. That method works for you, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's the best method for others. There are multiple paths to get a desired result. Many pro players don't have in-depth theory knowledge.
Let me turn your analogy around a bit - if one can already speak English fluently, is it necessary to take English lessons? I never said learning theory is a bad thing, btw.
Thank you Evan. I needed that. I wasn't born with magical musical awesomeness, I just worked hard to obtain the moderate level of skill I have. This video confirmed that my way was a pretty good plan after all.
