The quote above is So. Very. True. Of music theory.

For instance, you’d think that music theory is the same for all instruments.

“Theory is theory” they tell you.

Well, in theory they are right.

In practice, not so much.

The vast majority of good resources on music theory (for instance, books) are explicitly made by people who play piano who are talking to other people who play piano.

If you don’t play piano, it’s really hard for you to follow what they are doing.

That’s why most guitar players find theory “boring”: they are trying to understand something that is not in their language
