Re: Music Theory
I have to be able to understand the words. Whether its the mumbling of Bob Dylan, the screaming of Metallica, slang drenched rap, or just the lazy diction of Springsteen, if I can't understand what's being sung, I'm not going to be interested. I know that the pronunciation is part of the feel of the song, but if I'm spending all my energy deciphering the words, I'm not thinking about the music itself or the meaning of the words being said.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
