Forums : Off-topic Discussion : Music Theory- The basics updated V7
Introduction Hello there, you may have seen me around The Escapist and most know me as The Rockerfly, I am a musician. I have been playing music for about 10 years and have been writing for 3 years. I have an A level in music, grade 7 guitar, grade 5 in tuba, play the drums part time and sing for a group as well. It has come to my attention though that several Escapist members wish to become musicians or are in the process of becoming musicians and this guide is here to help you on your journey Now to write music it is useful to have theory however it is NOT essential to writing music however it is useful if you to progress and write things out of your comfort zoneI know it is hard to know where to start with the theory and I find writing this article very difficult so please excuse me if you feel that I have not written it to your standards, every musician has been taught differently so their theory will be different Reading Sheet Music I believe I may have missed out some content. 1.
