GUEST,Futwick Minor key signatures are wrong (122* d) RE: Minor key signatures are wrong 01 Jun 13

**Futwick, perhaps you haven't noticed but this is a folk forum and not a jazz forum. In folk music, as a rule of thumb, you do and play what the folk you like irrespective of rules or theoretical stratagems. Generally here sounds trump theories.**

What difference does it make whether it's folk or jazz?? The same rules apply. Folk doesn't use the minor scales any differently than jazz does because the same rules of harmony apply. But jazz takes melodic minor up and down the same way because that's most often going to be the case. If jazz can do it, why is it still taught in this same useless fashion?

**From your initial post I assumed you wanted some explanation or clarification regarding aspects of fairly simple music theory issues.**

I asked for no such thing. I'm well acquainted with music theory.

**But it seems that you want us all to acknowlege your superior theoretical perceptions. Sorry. This is not the right place. Perhaps you will have better luck elsewhere.**

It's as good a place as any and you know it.
