On of the most brilliant pieces I have ever read. What a way to start the new year.

What if, instead of worrying about the mastery of specific techniques, you
figured out what you like most to play and did that?
Then, the public, infected by your own having a good time, would have a good
time itself and someone would pay you a compliment you'd be able to believe
in the efficacy of... And the whole adventure would create a feedback loop,
itself a powerful blast through the supposed wall!
Then, armed with confidence and that intangible energy that comes with
playing out and having a few good nights, you'd start mastering all those
occult techniques, all the while, still having a good time which is what
most of the audience wants.
Just a possibility,
