By the word 'understanding' in, "understanding how that's built into
excellent playing," I meant, of course, not intellectual understanding,
but practical understanding; understanding as the relationship with the
ability that results in its being a natural and unconscious part of
one's performance.

Of course, you can understand it intellectually too, if you want to:-)

BTW, the automatic tagline generator seems to have come up with the
goods again....
