Apropos nothing (I looked that up to see EXACTLY what if means and now I have less idea than I did before) I had a wonderful experience yesterday at the weekly sax lesson. Having discovered rock and roll about fifty years after everyone else, I am drifting slowly and surely in that direction and yesterday I did something I have never done before and I think perhaps I sort of accepted would never happen. Teach put on a backing track of Peggy Sue and said, "go on then, play something". So I froze and cringed and did all that stuff you do when you´re on the spot and then I started and it is the first time that I have played straight off the top of my head and played what was in my mind and not just what is in the scale. I know it didnt sound as good as it felt, but I will settle for the feeling, cos I can only say it felt like flying. Really. I wished that track would never end. I am still happy about it now.
Have a good weekend
Mike

Flying is great but occasionally you do a RyanAir. Just remember most punters don't notice.

Well done. Playing music is a great thing...the better we get...the more we enjoy it...

Just watch out for bumpy landings...
