Musical Genius [General]
The power of your performances derives more from your appreciation of musical theory than your ability to directly to directly connect with your listeners.
Prerequisite: Perform (keyboard instruments), Perform (percussion instruments), Perform (string instruments) or Perform (wind instruments) 1 rank.
Benefit: You may apply your Intelligence modifier instead of your Charisma modifier to Perform (keyboard instruments), Perform (percussion instruments), Perform (string instruments) and Perform (wind instruments) checks. In addition, if you have 5 or more ranks in Concentration, you get a +2 synergy bonus on the above mentioned Perform checks.
Normal: Your Perform checks are affected by your Charisma modifier, and never receive synergy bonuses.
Special: DMs that introduce new subsections of the Perform skill are recommended to consider allowing this feat to apply to any new musical instruments.
