    Going back to the groove workshop again, I have another question. When I was watching the emotion/feel segment victor did a little demo. He was playing harmonics and he said "when that gets too much, and the audience is getting a little restless" he played a fill using the slap thumb and pluck technique and said "that brings them right back in" My question is how do you know when to time a fill or how do you know when to change the emotion so that the audience isn't getting restless? If you were writting a song in regular form (intro, verse, chorus) when and where would you do as victor did when writting in simple song form? I know that victor always stresses "don't think about it". Is it something you have to listen and feel for?

    I prefer to not respond for Victor. But I think he was referring to live performances, not a recorded song. It's easy to tell when I live audience is getting restless,...they get loud and unruly.
