QUESTION ONE: Who learns one tune every week, week in week out? Perchance a delightful Sunday ritual, by which they read (or listen to) a new tune, practise it and then quietly commit it to memory as they take the dog for a Sunday walk, returning by the fireside o’ th’ eventide with contemplative reflection and serene serenity, adding sweet polishes and touches to the melody, thereby making it their own?
QUESTION TWO: Who learns five tunes a day, for a two-week stretch, fanatically, aquisitively, flipping thru cds and books, playing playing playing until the brain spins and the head hurts and the body goes sleepless and then burns out, so that the heart says "No more! I quit this stupid music!"
just wondering……( by my calculations both types end up with about 3000 tunes at the end of their life….
one more wee question: can we take these tunes with us when we go?
