This is a test of real music theory knowledge, and not a test of whether you know all the latest rad guitarists or can name the hits of the hip-hop artists in your iPod. My motivation for creating this quiz was that 99% of all the other "music" quizzes here are just that: pop culture quizzes, and not _music_quizzes.
This is not an easy quiz to take "cold" if you don't happen to be either a professional musician or a current music student. but you can take heart from that fact that, if you have a sincere interest in music, most people can learn all of the fundamentals on which this test is based in 6-months to a year -- one or two good community college music classes will do it.
