All of my life I have been blessed (or cursed, depending on your point of view) with the ability to take complex ideas and break them down into more easily understood chunks of information. By finding the various patterns, I can reimagine them in a way that makes it easier for me to understand, remember and apply.
All of which might help to explain why I ended up in the IT realm 20 some years ago. I specialize in micro business technologies (μB) and have written a book about it (in all of its irreverent glory) tentatively titled “KISS-IT” which will be available on Amazon and in PDF format as soon as editing is complete.
I have solid software development experience (OOP) and have tinkered with websites and graphics for the better part of the last 20 years. Admittedly, some of the graphics on this site are a little off, but my intent was never to attain perfection – it was for clarity. In most respects, I think I’ve succeeded. But there are always improvements to be made and they will happen as time and money become available.
Note.Network consists of a combination of text, charts, graphics and audio that I created for my own musical edification. They’ve helped me come to grips with what was important and what wasn’t when trying to learn the basics of music theory and how it applied to my ultimate goal – a better understanding of how to write songs using my ‘ol git fiddle and a cheap keyboard.
In other words, this is NOT an all inclusive view of music theory!
It doesn’t include anything on how to read or write music – yet. But taken together, the content on this site may just help you come to grips with the fundamental building blocks of music theory as it pertains to the guitar or for that matter, any instrument. Its primary purpose is to expose the underlying patterns and relationships located in the various INTERVALS, KEYS, SCALES, MODES and CHORDS and how you can use them as a foundation on which to further build your musical understanding.
Spend some time reading, gawking and working through the various key, scale and mode patterns and I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at what you just might learn.
