Little Neophyte One Small Step = One Giant Musician Leap (17) RE: One Small Step = One Giant Musician Leap 13 Apr 01

Thanks guys,
I've understood the concept of osmosis when it comes to absorbing the music and I've been given little glimpse of this phenomena but what I experienced today seemed like it came from heaven.
Everyone told me, just listen to the music. That listening is more important than playing. Boy do I believe them now. I also find listening to the same music over and over and over again really helps. I have narrowed my CD listening repertoire down to only 10 CDs. For 2 months that is all I have been listening to. I know this could drive someone else right around the bend, but I don't mind. I like these CDs, I want to learn how to play these tunes so I don't think much about the fact it sounds like I am playing 10 broken record. Sounds just fine by me.
One thing I do know is when I finally get another 10 CDs to replace the ones I am listening to right now, it will feel like buying a new car.
