FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions
 
 
Why do I need any of this information?
 
Theory can help you out of situations when inspiration fails you. It can help you develop aspects of your playing you recognize are missing. For improvisation, expanding one's tonal or rhythmic palette can offer more colors at your disposal.
 
 
I can't possibly think of a particular arpeggio/scale/chord while chord changes are flying by?
 
Probably true for most people and the end result might not be very melodically or harmonically pleasing either. A better solution is to use your practice time to work out chord and scale or arpeggio relationships until the note choices become something you hear rather than a pattern you think of.

After a certain number of hours of practice, it will become automatic and you won't have to think about the particular scale, arpeggio, or chord.
