George Hawks here...(7/29/2013)...I never realized how important music theory was.I believe you have to understand this to become well rounded.It takes awhile maybe a couple years of playing to want to dive into this.I have other sources for this information but nobody makes it as clear as Neil does.When you are ready to try to understand this Neil has the most informative collection on this subject.Thankswritten by georgehawks, July 29, 2013
