The Tao of Music

Everything I know I learned from playing the guitar.

Pain is part of it. Growth and change can be painful – you have to grow calluses on your fingers, exercise your muscles and stretch your tendons.

Work is essential to achieve growth in any field – practicing guitar strengthens your fingers, but more importantly creates new neural pathways in your brain.

Discipline – you can’t just play guitar once in a while, you need to have the mental discipline to do it daily.

Surrender – you have to surrender to the rhythm, to groove of the band – the sum of the total.
