“Why Do I Need To Learn Chords? I Just Want To Play Songs — not learn all that music theory!” Over the years many people have said something like that to me. That’s pretty much like saying “I just want to operate on people — I don’t want to go to medical school and study!”
Of course, there are a very FEW people who can play most anything they hear without knowing what they are doing. Erroll Garner was one of those, and I just saw a guy on TV the other evening who could do that. And if you are that gifted, more power to you! You certainly don’t need to take lessons from me.
