sometimes i try to understand the theory musicians talk about and i end up on wikipedia with many tabs open thinking it's literally harder than quantum physics

@CobaltVelvet has a musician *and* ex-physicist
nah it's not, it's just very badly explained
I wouldn't understand either if I was only relying on wikipedia articles tbh

@CobaltVelvet even if they act like it's not, it makes it much easier if you know that everything in music theory is subjective and arbitrary

@CobaltVelvet If it helps, a lot of it makes more sense in practice.

@CobaltVelvet Conversation when I asked a professional musician a question, don't remember what but something like what do “sharp” and “flat” mean?

her: what instrument do you play?

me: the oscilloscope.

her: …?
