Yes, I’ve been practicing. Working on “John Henry” right now.
But when I take a break from concentrating on that, and just let my fingers dance on the fretboard, sometimes sounds come out that are quite compelling,
My eyes glaze over and my jaw drops down. And the nonsense sounds that my fingers are making are magical…to me. So I stop after a while, rather than go back to concentrating on “John Henry.”
After you shoot a hole-in-one, do you really want to tee off on the next hole?
Besides, I’m hoping some of the magic stays with me. I don’t want it all to go away when I do terrible things to “John Henry.”
