    Flying jets - I agree with you on that. But flying helicopters - and Hueys at that - still is very much "seat of the pants" flying. And trumpet playing has been a similar experience for many of us.

    LOL!! I won't argue with you about trying to keep a Helo in the air. They are the exact opposite of a plane. A plane wants to fly, a Helo doesn't......

    It will just take me time to get there. My current teacher/director/friend is an example of what you are talking about. It doesn't show up so much in section playing, but it is very noticeable in solos of any style. The cool thing with him is not only can he forget himself and play with reckless abandon, he can explain exactly why he did what he did and why it sounded the way it did. I agree, it does take a long time for many of us to find our sound.
