Re: On the Grammar of Music

> There are no such rules.

Since Ed Burns isn't on this list anymore, I guess someone else has to
huff and puff and blow the house down and say "Stop the patent

Anyone who truly believes there are no rules in music would give up
working on the neuroscience of music and become a roofer. At least
there the basic rule is, water flows down hill (unless you don't believe
there are rules concerning gravity and water flow).
