I'm not highly educated when it comes to music theory in fact I don't know hardly any. That being said, I am a decent player. I'm curious if someone more educated or qualified than myself, could tell me how it is that I can play almost anything, but not have a clue what I'm actually playing. I dont know what the names of any chords are past the first position, but I use them all and frequently, and I can pick up on most things really fast. It's really weird to me... and the friend of mine who brought it to my attention and made me think about it. I've spent the last 21yrs playing guitar on a daily basis, and I have little to any real knowledge about how I do it. My buddy claims that I know more than I think I do, I'm just unaware of it (how?) So, if anyone knows, how is it that I can play and not have a clue? It's not that I'm not interested in actually learning, I just don't know where to start.
