Concerning How to Play / Accompany

September 7, 2011

random thoughts…listening to music this am…the idea is not to intrude…you’re always one step away from corniness…from intrusiveness…distracting from the main focus of the song…it’s perilously easy to do…it takes strict editing to avoid it…and then even with all that…we often fail…it’s the compositional approach really…an eraser is the best tool you have…scratch it out…delete it and see how it sounds….don’t play anything that says “look at me”….no affectations…don’t get cute…
