learning process elaborated

Published in deep thoughts, the play, updated news - recent posts

i wanted to elaborate on that last post where i say all i do is listen to podcasts by bart hanson. i’m a serious believer in that if u want to master something you have to live it and breath it as much as u can. when i had to learn songs for an audition i would literally go thru steps/phases of learning but they all involved constant exposure and immersion of my brain into those songs. i would listen to the songs whenever i couldnt actually play them…i would listen at the gym, when i was in the car, when i went to sleep – all the time until they were stuffed into my subconscious. the ultimate goal was to play these songs as if you were playing them your entire life. the final process had to look effortless. that’s why i will listen to hand analysis over and over and over..because i’m starting later in life and thus am already at an experiential disadvantage. i even fall alseep listening to deuce plays. thank god i dont have a girl friend now because im sure that wouldnt go over well.
