david6strings 3958@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>one beautiful thing a friend of mine said once is: you reach the goal for a musician the first day you get the instrument.<br /> so for everybody who once wanted to be pat metheny, as i did, is a good sentece in order to discovery what is fake and what is true when we think about walking the whole life path of being a musician. </p>

Basile865 3946@http://www.kurtrosenwinkel.com/forum/ <p>The concept of growing to a certain high level of musicianship, virtuosity; &quot;genius&quot; is a path I&#39;m trying to understand greater. </p> <p>Part of the beauty of this is the fact that theres no &quot;secret&quot; in a certain light. You literally just have to listen, focus, and practice - rinse and repeat. A friend told me about a John Scofield interview in which he said something to the extent of &quot;anybody can be a virtuoso if they put in 10,000 hours.&quot; I believe it.</p> <p>But what I also want to touch on is the spiritual side of it.......you guys know how you can have a night where &quot;the cosmos align&quot; and everything is mind blowing, your hair stands on end. etc etc. Then we have the nights where we just can&#39;t get it together. </p> <p>My guess is that the people that really know themselves and have a healthy mindset can tap into the zone, or sweet spot, whatever you want to call it and have the &quot;cosmos aligning&quot; effect more often then the average musician. </p> <p>The question directed to Kurt and everyone else is how do you get to that place? A thought I had was just leading an enriched life outside of music itself - which seems to make the practice sessions more fruitful for myself. I&#39;m trying to understand the most effective way to grow and I think we, as musicians, are constantly trying this. </p> <p>I&#39;m open to anything including religion/spirituality comments; I know some forums have rules to keep away from religion and politics as it usually leads to online battles haha, but I think we&#39;re all coming from pretty similar places being that we&#39;re on Kurt&#39;s forum and on the quest to bettering ourselves musically, striving to reach levels of people like Kurt himself.</p> <p>If you do read this Kurt - on a side note - I&#39;m working to get you down to the south east man - I&#39;m in NC and have talked with your management about trying to get something together - I know theres less of a market down here for modern jazz. But its my hope just to have a conversation with you in person one day man. Anyhow thats all for now - I&#39;m excited to see the responses. Thanks everyone.</p> <p>-Rob </p>
