IIRC another reply was regarding to "it's better to know how to name chords, than to say 'put one finger to that fret and another finger to this fret'"Full ACK, but in the beginning nobody is able to know that
This is so surprising from a person who is on a linux mailing list: this is exactly the difference between "just open the exe file on windows" (mechanically do something that seems to 'get the job done' without trying to understand how it works) and try downloading the source and understanding how things work i.e. learnng.
Knowing the theory means helping to learn and understand what phenomena (physical, psychophysical, social, cultural) are behind the your 'music and emotion' thing - otherwise you are mystifying and turning music into black magic ;)
Btw. IMO music is similar to sex
Well of course, put this finger on this fret and another finger on this fret :P (sorry couldn't resist).
