For example, a good starting point is to use
root position chords at the beginning and ends
of musical phrases, but otherwise use some
inversions mid phrase. This has the effect of
root bass notes at the ends, and non-root bass
notes mid phrase. No hard and fast rules
necessarily, but it does give an efficient
place to start.

I'm not disagreeing w folks that don't wanna
study theory. Many have done well enough
without it. For hobbiests that feel that it
is unpleasant work, then noodle on.
But I've personally [nearly] always felt it was
worth learning from other ppl's success & failures.
Music theory encapsulates some of that. Our present
genereation(s) seem to quickly dis any old knowledge,
which is short-sighted imo.
The Darwin Awards OTOH, addresses a different
side of that (e.g. the "rockers who died at 27"
