I possibly wouldn't be here if it wasn't for music. I can't remember who said "there has never been a better time to listen to music", but I definitely have to agree with him. I still yearn for my 70's vinyl days, but the sheer variety of music available today outweighs all that. I don't download, but buy CDs judiciously price wise, and rip them to lossless. What I am really curious about is what it is like to be musically literate. Describe what it felt like when you finally grasped an understanding when learning music. How would you objectify it? For example, a photographer might say that light and space constitute the main elements of his understanding, but his real understanding is intuitive when judging how those elements come into play. Why isn't music taught to all children like basic maths and language skills? What would be a good learning resource on music basics?
