The Death Of Music
If you know what you are going to play, play something else;
or nothing at all.
After all, why hit the right note when a lot more notes get in the way?
One string is often sufficient;
and sometimes already one string too many.
Rhythm becomes more apparent when we stop playing from time to time.
Dynamics are good, and more obvious when some notes are quieter than others.
If you like to hit things loudly, constantly, relentlessly, consider becoming a drummer.
Loud, endless strumming = death.
Good to listen to yourself;
but listening to others is necessary.
Remain in motion, whether stationary or not:
Stillness is dynamic, and only appears to be static.
Breathing is permissible.
The criteria are reliability, repeatability and responsibility.
You are playing with friends;
whether you like them or not;
whether they like you, or not;
whether we know it or not.
If none of these apply to you, a career in artist management, A&R or drumming is waiting.
