Re: [Harp-L] Jerry Portnoy and Lee Sankey

Tis true. It is all about how your HEAR. 

I teach HOW TO LISTEN as well as how to play an instrument. For instance, you can not play effectively at a speed faster than your ability to hear and process the information in your inner ear. 

The processing is the ability to listen to musical line and understand fully which notes are flying by in real time. If it is moving too fast for your comprehension, work on this comprehension. In other words, learn to be able to listen at a faster velocity.

I've had the good fortune to play with a number of very good  
musicians over the years.  In my experience, the best musicians HEAR  
it.  Whatever technique they may use to get around or orient  
themselves on their instrument, a refined ear is the hallmark of  
every really good musician I've ever been around.
