My knowledge of theory is kinda fucking up my guitar playing right now. I pretty much only know basic theory. I really need to start studying again to learn the rest. It would be pretty bitchin' to master the blue scales too.

everyone in this thread should also recall that dissonance, not tonality, is the weight of music. without dissonance and tension it's only an inane chord progression with nothing interesting going on.

polyarpeggios are what I am kind of studying right now. Learning how to give the ear a sense of consistency when I'm playing through them, but you can get some really great sounds... sometimes you get sounds that sound a bit disturbing.
what does everyone's practice look like?

you guys seem pretty regimented about your shit. don't forget that free association and personal research are also valuable things.
you should all read derek bailey's book on improvisation, too.
