On my Facebook page recently, I posted the following quote:
"Playing soft with the same intensity as loud is difficult to master."
I think it's a great quote that puts a spotlight on the importance of playing softly. But as usual, one of my mentors, Rex Martin, came in and put it in even better words. The comment he left on that status was priceless:
"Not particularly difficult at all, but pretty time consuming."
Reminds me of the JJ Johnson quote from one of last month's Monday YouTube Fix's about taking shortcuts when learning an instrument. Spoiler Alert: JJ couldn't find any.
