Hit more weird notes

RONI: You mean like... this?
JOHN: YES! Yeah. That.
RONI: OK, so when you say you want me to "hit more weird notes" in my solos, you actually want me to use chromatics to create melodic tension.
JOHN: I guess.
RONI: (sigh) This would be so much easier if you guys had a strong music theory background.
JOHN: Yeah...
JOHN: Or, I mean, if you DIDN'T.
