In all this talk of music, scales and chords, I realized that none of this would make any sense if you don’t take a step forward.
Let’s FERMATA for a moment… And think about it….
Let’s say that you want to learn to play by ear, and you’ve come to a place where you know all the scales, all the chords, all the intervals in all 12 keys, and you still can’t GET IT! What do you do? Should you give up? Should you quit after 10 times? Or 100? Or 1000 ? NO! It’s not an option!
When James Dyson was building his bagless vacuum, he experienced a lot of failure. But he didn’t quit! He built 5,126 prototypes that did not work. He had 5126 examples of what NOT to do. But his 5,127th vacuum became the first of millions of vacuums that did work!
So should you quit?
NO! Just FERMATA and keep Playing It By Ear!
