I want to start a thread that focusses on just having fun - playing something and enjoying it. Just for that single 5 minutes - whether or not you will ever be able to reproduce it or not - just enjoy the music you've just made and remember how crap you sounded even 1 month ago!. As a learner with only 2 or 3 months playing I really KNOW I am such a novice and have so much more to learn - but it has to be fun and life enriching. I wanted to play the sax cos I love the sound and I love music - sometimes it's good to just play around and realise how much you do know - rather than always focussing on what you have to learn. There'll always be more to learn - but where you're at now is really good too. This is so not aatll meant to be a pop at the need to learn more - really it isn't, I'm doing my scales religiously! and - I'm as greedy as the next man (or woman) to improve - but you can go slowly but very surely mad unless you stop sometimes to smell the coffee.
