I'm posting this because, well I want to know, but also because I think this will make for an interesting discussion (although the last few threads I have posted thinking that, turned out not to be: fingers crossed?). I have learned many instruments, and through all of those experiences, I have learned that I get very frustrated with myself. It's difficult to be content with just sucking for awhile, because it takes time get good... a lot of time. It's a difficult balance; you have to be content with sucking so that you don't get angry, but you have to be dissatisfied enough to keep practicing. So, my question is: how do you maintain this balance? Or really, how do you enjoy getting good, instead of waiting to be good.
