Q: Will learning guitar theory cramp my musical style?

A: Learning guitar theory will not cramp your style or hurt your creativity in any way.  In fact, it will open up many new doors for you.  As you learn more about music theory you will have more tools at your disposal.  It's up to you as to whether you use them all the time or just some of the time.  You can basically flip a switch to turn them on, or off at will. 

What you'll love most about understanding guitar theory is the flexibility it gives you.  Let's say you've been playing guitar for a while but you're not too knowledgeable about music theory.  This means when you sit down to write a new song, you'll  have to noodle around and go through the trial and error process to come up with something you like.  If you get stuck, unfortunately you really are stuckyou'll have to wait and mess around until you find something that will work.

If you know guitar theory you have many, many more options.  You can still sit and noodle until you find something you like, or you can decide to use the power of guitar music theory to get you started.  In fact, you'll have the choice to sit down and write a song completely based on the theory you know.  Or you can use theory just as the basisyou get the basic song started and then start to experiment.  You could start to ask yourself "where should this chord go?" or "where should this melody line or guitar solo go?".  Next you can ask yourself ""where could this chord go?" or "where could this melody line or guitar solo go?". Then you make your choice.  You decide what suits the song best.  Do you want to go with this option or that one, or that other one? 

The important thing to realize is that guitar music theory gives you many more options that you wouldn't otherwise have.  Depending on what you are doing you get to decide if you want to go completely based on "feel" or go purely based on theory.

Or you can use my favourite technique which is to use a combination of the two.  Whenever I write music I use a combination of feel, inspiration, noodling and guitar theory to get the best of both worlds.  The bottom line is the more guitar music theory you know, the more choices you have.  And that of course is a great thing isn't it?
