yes yes - agreed!! the "simple" tunes offer challenges as well - and usually to my weakest point - musicallity!! Not that I'v a good technician these days either - but I can probably move my hands better than I can bring out what I hear in my head
There was a line from Mash (the series) - Winchester said something like "... I can play the notes ... but I can't make the music..."
or something similar --- I knew then and I STILL know what he meant!!
This is a very good point, Horace, and hits the nail on the head. Particularly where I am concerned. My new teacher says that I am there (well, almost) from a technical point of view, but he needs to bring 'musicality' out of me. My weakest point too!
He is going to have one hell of a job doing it... ha ha!!
All the good music has already been written by people with wigs and stuff.
