sorin popovici -> RE: Daily Practice Regime (Jan. 1 2006 22:12:37)
Miguel ....I wanna apologize ,i'm not lecturing here this is just my opinion.
I dont want trouble,and I do respect u for your hard path that u chose.
Do you really listen hard to every note you play, like Grisha and Todd do, or do you just ask other people if it sounds good?
I have little experience compared to others ,I think sometime that I know it ....and that
the answer is "yes" ....but surely the correct answer is not that easy to find,and
now at the begining maybe the answer is "no".
It is because I DOUBT my judgement I ask others .
Lets say u are in a foreign city and want to get to the townhall....what's
best ,spend ten hours of really really thinking and observing or ask
for directions from a man that u know that he knows the answer?
Sure ,that asking yourself is important because u find your own
answers ....but u still have to verify that answer by asking others.
When somebody records smth here and say ..."hey can u listen this?"
is not just for showoff(it is sometimes for that also [:D]
,also for getting a little respect ...cause otherwise here
nody knows who u are as a guitar player) but
also because he needs to verify that things are like he thinks it.
(y do we listen to them and give opinions , because in this
process of listening to them ...we also learn,more or less)
Now, I wouldnt advise beeing completely alone in learning smth....
I put lots of questions that saves me lots of time...can u imagine
that if u knew exactly what to practice,u will be better not in 10 years but in 5 maybe.
Have u never read on this foro a phrase like "my playing is better now
thanks to the people here"?
that beeing said ...every arguement I made here ,I think u already knew.
The real problem is when u do learn smth is how to learn.
U can learn from
1.your own experience
3.using 1 and 2
Now,I think it is evident for everybody that the corect answer is 3.
Again , the real real problem is how much do u take from others
and how much from your own experience.
my answer is smth like:
a)if u are a beginner u better take 10% from your own experience
and 90% from others
b)if u are advanced u better take 50% from your own experience
and 50% from others
c)if u are pro .............bla bla
now , I believe that this deciding these procents..is your job.
There is nothing to talk about ,and there is no misunderstanding
....u think that I ask too much,but it's still my job to decide the procentage
,to find what I do lack in my education.
Henrik for example, has very short sentences...I am not there
like he is so I need 90% of other people experience.
I think this thing I said aplies to every domain , so as
I do study engineering ..I think I can have a solid opinion on this
topic(the topic of learning),ofcourse if it is about music ...I dont
know the details ...so I ask.I'm not forcing anyone into answering.
Again I apologize ...i dont want u to be upset about me saying these
things,but even if I dont say it ....I still think like that,and it's
better for me to say it ...cause maybe I'm wrong and u'll show me that
I'm wrong(if u would like and have the time).
