I've just added "Re-learn music theory" to my list. My list currently stands at:
- Learn Japanese
- Relearn Latin
- Relearn Greek
- Study A-level biology
- Relearn A-level physics
- Learn to speak French, properly, so I can actually speak it rather than just being able to read, write & vaguely understand aurally
- Relearn music theory
Like I'm ever going to have enough copious free time to learn even the new stuff. If I could only remember everything I've ever forgotten, I'd be sooo clever.
Meanwhile, I discover that my head really is full of song lyrics. Sang along to most of the "Toys in the Attic" album word perfectly, despite not having played it in years. Why do I have the lyrics of "Sweet Emotion" in my head to the extent I could probably sing it backwards, yet I can't remember what frigging mode it's in. Gah.
Update: I've found the score to the bass line online, legally. OK, it's in A major. All the tabs are highly simplified compared to what's played on the record, but definitely the bass line has an A --> G natural thing going on. That's a diminished seventh, isn't it?
And argh argh argh in doing a Google search I just found an FAQ for 'Revolution X'! NOOOOO!! Don't remind me of that game!! (When I was an Aerosmith fangirl, I once put £40 into a Rev X machine. I'm not joking. I wish I was.)
