Members of Borknagar, Trained Musicians?

What members of Borknagar have taken lessons for their instruments, and can anyone in the band read music? Or is it just something done "by ear?" Just curious, as I think that you guys are all superb musicians (especially Tyr!).

Tyr is a trained musician, it says so on their homepage.

Believe it or not, but I don't even know what a 4/4 beat is... I've had the idea for a couple of years now making a shirt where it says "4/4?".

Yes, very witty.

Surely there would have been a bit of musical theory talk in your work with Spastic Ink?

Musical theory is probably very helpful to have but I seem to get by well enough doing things by ear. I can't even read music, only tablature and I have been playing guitar for about 5 years now. And Asgeir, you don't need to know 4/4, you seem to extremely well without it! Haha.

There is no such thing as a 4/4 beat, since no one knows what it is.....
