    Quick excerpt:

    "There are only two elements that allowed you to become a master of the English language at such a young age. Only two: being surrounded by it, and jamming with it. That's it! English came quickly and easily to you, and from what you told me, you were also surrounded by music, so it must be jamming that makes the difference."

    "Imagine if we allowed beginners to jam with professionals on a daily basis. Do you think it would take them 20 years to get good? Absolutely not! It wouldn't even take them ten. They would be great by the time they were musically four or five years old. Instead we keep beginners in the beginning level class for a few years before we let them move up to the intermediate level class. After a few more years at that level, they move up to the advanced level class...."



    I mean this doesn't apply to everyone or every situation. But it just gets you thinking about music in diferent ways than you may previously have been accustomed to. It's just really opened my mind to different, new concepts.
