You might be being a bit hard on yourself, Lucy. I happened to look at you playing live and it looks very secure and at a high level : )
Thank you mcg. But it could be better!!
I am hard on myself, yes, but you have to be, if you want to get really good.
I do know what you mean, though. I suppose it's about details. I don't succeed at all those I'd like. It's not so much that they're incredibly important, in themselves, taken in isolation. I seem to be good enough to entertain an audience and receive a lot of positive feedback.
It's just that if I sorted out those little details, they would, as a whole, result in more than the sum of their parts. I think it would lift my playing up, as a whole, by quite some measure.
An interesting journey...
