Hi all, is it possible to improvise without knowing scales, chords etc? I've been trying to learn scales and chords to improvise with for the past couple of months and it has been a real frusterating task... been collecting bits and pieces of information about improvisation over the internet and books, but now I just wanna play the damn guitar! as in downloading tabs for my favorite songs to play along with. NO MORE SCALES CHORDS THEORY!
Will this hurt my ability to play with other musicians or even becoming a musician? I've been thinking of starting a band or joining one, but I hear learning how to improvise is important esp. when playing with others.
