That's my point... they got their money's worth. fugheddaboudit!
Not necessarly. When I find a performance did not live up to it's full potential, I place blame on the environment in which I was playing and then spend tons of money on musical and audio environment enhancing equipment. A lot safer than booze and drugs, but requires larger trunks on vehicles transporting me to gigs.
A baseball player is considered great if they get three hits after ten at bats. 90% Free-throw shooting is considered great. Mistakes happen, but as long as we try to be musical and are aware of our mistakes we're ahead of our game.
Amen, (Vulgano) Brother!!
the weatherman is only about 50% and he still keeps a job -- weather channel??? OK - he or she stilll keeps a job.
I figured that -- but I was glad to give you a pep talk anyhow -- makes me feel like I am helping out in this big world
Everybody has a bad day. As a kid I remember hauling my parents to a sunrise chruch service where one of Buddy Rich's trumpet players were sitting in with a small brass choir. Apparently whomever did the transposing didn't know what they were doing and the group was sightreading. Every single note the guy played for the entire chart was wrong (noewhere within the cord structure). As it was arranged where he didn't have the melody, it was really bad -he couldn't even fake it. My parents left thinking the guy was horrible. Two years later, he was cranking a unbelievable solos on an album.
I admire the fact that you're willing to admit you have bad days.
I use a different standard. Any day that when I wake up and don't read my name in the obituary, is going to be a good day.
I use a slightly different one to this - every day has a special feature - pretty clouds - bright sunshine - fantastic rain - mysterious fog - I find this special feature and it begins my day positively (always).
