Scaling the debts
I despise nerdy theories which over complicate improvisation. Theories created by musicologist who can’t play at all. Therefore, creativity is stifled when the cart is placed before the horse. If you haven’t guessed already, the cart represents the rules and the horse creativity. As a result, rules are applied before creativity begins inevitably ending in depersonalization and repetition. In either case that is not what you want.
