The time to secure my place as "King of Analogies That May Have Been Better Left Unsaid" has come again...

Think of driving a standard... you can learn to do it shifting "when it feels right", but knowing the finer points of exactly what R.P.M. you should switch over at for the best gas mileage or how to effectively combine downshifting with your brake usage to increase brake pad life can't hurt, right? I mean, you can drive either way, but once you learn the technical stuff, you drive better. The same goes for music theory... you can play guitar without learning it, but the theory just provides some guidelines that can help.
