The most important MUSIC lesson I learned from Doc, AND HIS BANDS, the many times I saw them play was this: pick a great song and then relax on into it and let it play. Don't do it "right." And don't "do" "Doc's style"-- his style was to always be on the next wave, not whatever one we might now be trying to copy.

It's not the technique. Just DO IT and let it run its course.

That's the Real Deal. Works ever' time. :~)
