In my time here, I've noticed a lot of answers that say things like:
- If it sounds good, do it.
- You can do whatever you want.
- Theory gives rules, but you can always break them.
- Who cares what the rules say? Just do what you think sounds best.
In a way I understand where these answers are coming from. But when the OP asks "What is this rule?" it seems to me that "ignore the rule" is a non-answer. Or if someone asks "Is there a theoretical answer to why this chord follows this one?" I don't think "because it sounds good" is a worthwhile answer.
Should such answers be discouraged?
