Talkbass is full of talk of Theory and sheet music, rules and techniques, tab evil and something else that I can't think of right now. Nobody ever brings up the sheer joy of playing improvised music! How depressing. It seems we get all tied up in being "serious musicians" that I get a vibe that our members are too good to do anything less than hard, dedicated theory study, and tedious song writing and composing to play at their gigs. Am I wrong? I haven't been a member for to long on this site, so I might be missing something. Why is it never brought up or discussed? I mean, I don't know what we would talk about, but don't you think its funny that it's almost never brought up?
