  • The KEY to mastery and freedom

    This concept is so simple and genius , and really common sense if you think about it, that I wanted to share it :

    Play something : Observe what your mind first think about. Write down that first thought. That thought is a barrier for feeling the music, and needs to be removed (if your goal is to express yourself freely). Isolate that one thing, solve it, and move on.

    The awesome stuff about this is that you know what to practice (the first thought), and what order ( first thought is what you need to remove first )

    Example : You improvise. The first thought you come up with is " the playing is sloppy, the notes are covered by noise". Then you know what to sit down and isolate.

    This is the key masters do consciously or unconsciously.

    Good practice.

    very Zen...

    "We are currently experiencing some technical difficulties due to reality fluctuations. The elves are working tirelessly to patch the correct version of reality. Activities here have been temporarily disabled since the fundamentals of mathematics, physics and reason may be incomprehensible during this indeterminate period of instability. Normal service will be restored once we are certain as to what 'normal' is."

    Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally used up and worn out, shouting ', what a ride!'
    "The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively" ~Bob Marley

      You can try hard
      Don't mean a thing
      Take it easy, greasy
      Then your jive will swing

      Oh 't ain't what you do it's the place that you
      do it
      'T ain't what you do it's the time that you do it

      'T ain't what you do it's the way that you do it

      That's what gets results

      You've learned your ABC's
      You've learned your DFG's
      But this is something you don't learn in school
      So get your hip boots on
      And then you'll carry on
      But remember if you're tryin' too hard
      It don't mean a thing
