I've been constantly asking questions here for around two years now, 138 to be exact, roughly 1-2 questions a week, and I really appreciate the help I've received by many of the people here. This might be my last question though. Recently I've been thinking that if my ultimate goal is composing/producing maybe I should focus on that solely and not get distracted by asking so many questions on theory and forum politics.
I tend to get upset when people downvote or criticize what I say, and I engage in arguments. Which leads to more waste of valuable time, time I could've spent creating. Most of the top hits I see on billboard charts are relatively simple. I can't imagine those artists just sitting on internet forums asking theory questions - they're out there making music. Even songs I regarded in high esteem my entire life turned out to be simple after I learned some theory. Artists that are super into theory don't necessarily make better music, actually I find their music corny most of the time. To me music is just a reflection of one's personality/emotions and if you don't jive with it then no amount of theory will save that. The actual language of music isn't too hard once you understand the basics of it. So is asking more questions/reveling in theory worth it beyond a point?
