    POPULAR SONG STRUCTURE By Jason Wilford In modern Rock and Pop music, many different sections are combined to create a full song. This will talk about the most common forms of popular song structure, and will ignore the inner workings of music such as blues and jazz, which have different forms altogether.

    Jimi Hendrix Didn’t Study Music Theory – why should I? By Vishaal Kapoor Many guitar players tend to shy away from Music Theory. This tends to be true especially for self-taught players, but applies to the majority of guitar players everywhere. I can understand it – I too used to run away from Music theory and thought that I didn’t really care for any of it. But when I decided to learn to understand what I was doing on the guitar, why it sounded good and how I could write better songs, or even understand what the heck my favourite guitar players were talking about, my eyes were completely opened by the world of Music Theory. So, one of the
