    Making a thread about a good basic theory regimen for practicing and building solos. If you don't like theory then get the fuck off my thread. Haha yeah no, it's not necessary to post here saying that you don't like theory, or that it's more important to listen/transcribe/sing etc. I think that stuff is equally important but I like to have a framework of theory and force myself to make lines out of it. Plus when you practice it, it removes obstacles about having to think about notes and you can play more freely.

    I'm thinking about making myself practice in any key or song: 1. the scales I frequently use. 2. the arps. 3. and I think I'm gonna add intervals. Gonna make sure I can run them in any key and then also practice making ideas out of them.

    Here's a hardcore interval theory vid that you can skip through. I don't always like to do super academic mega theory regimens, but I think adding this 1 thing will really help me.

    lol, evidently so ‘hardcore’ it has been deemed unsuitable for under-18s.

    It appears to need an age verification check before you can watch it.

    It says the uploader has requested this restriction. Presumably he didn't realise the implications of doing this!

    Coincidentally this happened to me just a few minutes ago regarding a clip with (innocent) medical content. I have never ever encountered this before - is this something new on YT?

    I clicked 'Watch on YouTube' and it just opened up in another tab all ready to go, no problem.

    I got a big boggly-eyed bloke who said there were hundreds of small scale sequences which you had to play three thousand times each. Yes, three thousand times each or you wouldn't remember them.

    Guess how long I watched it for :-)

    How are you supposed to prove your age, anyway? Send them a birth certificate?

    It doesn't work for me either.
    Maybe I'm too old... or this is just the minimum-minimum theory.

    If the restriction prevents me from seeing videos like that, I’m all for it.

    I'm logged into YouTube so presumably I must have ID'd myself at some point in time, hence the instant access.

    won’t ask why you felt the need to verify access to restricted over-18 content...

    Maybe this video is aimed at one person only.I just think so.

    I can't remember now but I probably did it as a matter of course. So as not to miss anything, you understand... :-)

    No age restriction for me.

    I started watching. He wants me to download three pages from his website, and print them.

    This is like the nineties.

    Has anyone ever heard Mr. Brown actually play a tune? You know, like make music? Anybody?

    Me neither.

    Sorry, Clint, we're trashing your video. But it is a bit much!

    Yep. Like I said, I usually (never) go for comprehensive theory study regimes where I have to work stuff for hours and hours that doesn't relate to music. However, I'm intrigued with this idea of intervals so I'm gonna work it. Skip around the video or just have it on in the background. He must have put age restricted video because he's a teacher and he probably did some at worst PG13 talking in there.

    The one time I have undertaken a mega theory regime and really gotten epic results out of it is my 24 key practice. I feel it's made me more fluent.

    Skip around to get the jist of it! Start at 10 minutes or so and have it on in the background.

    Anyway the thread would be about studying intervals or other basic theory concepts to make lines out of. The vid isn't integral.

    Pebbz is the 1 guy that I would say could use a tad more music and a tad less theory lol.
