"music and the suspension of time..
time cases to exist when you play-collapses.. you
play in.. real time..
extemporization means to play outside of time..
getting lost in the instrument, following your fingers, tracing a line of
thought out onto the frets and strings, letting it become a maze through which
learning to play means learning to forget
yourself, to disappear into the thing you are doing.
like an act of meditation - the instrument is a
sacred space you always return to. just practicing is enough."
