I learned to have a good time. Thanks Herbie. It was fun listening to you, playing along with you and stealing from you. I am nowhere in your league on my instrument, but little by little, I do get better, and that to me is the pursuit of happiness.
It wasn't what I thought it would be, but lessons that were great for the character and the mental of one who creates. I highly encourage this being a template video for anyone whom may struggle with, second guessing, lack of inspiration or feeling victim to the work that was once a joy.
What a wonderful experience -- inspiring, helpful, fun. That's as good as it gets.
I absolutely adore Mr. Hancock. His class has a lot to unveil.
