Things that make you go 'Hmmmmmm.....' *chinscratch*
« on: April 13, 2010, 08:28:34 PM »
Are there any one-liners or musical tidbits that you've come across that have changed your perspective, or something musical that got lodged in your brain when you heard/read it?  You know, chin-scratchers, noggin' knockers, eye-brow raisers.  Things that make you get this look on your face ---->   :o     :facepalm:


Here's a couple recent ones for me that got lodged in my brain and have altered the way I go about doing things:   

"Your right hand is who you are.  Your left hand is what you know."   (playing)

"Try to connect with one person in the audience."   (singing)



I feel like I need to stimulate what's left of my musical mind right now.    :D      :'(   

Anyone have any brain pokers for me?

One my guitar teacher told me:

Stop thinking and just play.

" It's such a fine line between stupid, and clever."

so very very true
I do not, for one, think that the problem was that the band was down. I think that the problem *may* have been, that there was a Stonehenge monument on the stage that was in danger of being *crushed* by a *dwarf*.

I had to look him up.  Yes, I guess he'd be one to know that!  :D

Looks like our teachers are from opposing schools of thought.  ;D

I was seven and all into rock and roll and he was a 50's jazz guy.  He played great, but I wasn't into "Stranger on the Shore."
