Music theory does not always make sense.

Sometimes it's because the concepts are genuinely difficult and it takes some time to understand them, and then figure out how to use them in your music. This is normal.

Sometimes though, music theory does not make sense because we music theorists made a mess at it. We took something very simple and we made it as hard as we possibly could for no good reason.

Of course, we did not do this on purpose. I hope.

In this video we are going to see some music theory 'gotchas', starting from the completely illogical way we count the intervals to the notational monstrosities that you can find on Jazz chord charts.

Come and enter the music theory 'gallery of horrors', have fun by laughing at how absurd music theory can be, and learn something useful. What's not to like?

And if you want to actually learn USEFUL music theory, that you can actually use for your music, and how it directly applies on the guitar, then check out the Complete Chord Mastery Guitar Course that explains everything you need to know step by step.
