Music ~ The Accidentals

As long as I am involved in the externals like tempo, rhythm, intonation, fingering etc. I am still miles away from the music itself.

You mean it's all chore, unless the music lives inside you first, and only escapes via some instrument?

Yes, that's right. I like the idea "live inside your first". Of course, the chores have to be fulfilled. But then there is a chasm that separates the technique from the music itself. One has to be able to "let go", "to fall".

Beautiful! That can have a spiritual application, too, can't it?
