…. the practise will never stop….. i understand now more than in the very beginning there are no short cuts. practise is the key.
Amen to that!
I began studying the piano several decades ago and I am still practicing! As with all knowledge, the knowledge of music and how to create it is infinite. There is always something more to learn, always something to refine a little further. Most people do not realize the time and the effort it takes to master a musical instrument. They see a musician such as Mitch pick up a harmonica and make it come to life with such apparent ease having no conception of the time and the effort that has gone into refining the art.
Practice is indeed the key. Along with an insatiable desire to never stop learning!
P.S. Nice work on the improvisation, Henk.
