Wow, I've been away for a few days, and what a lively dialog... Thank you, Messrs. Puwalski and Epstein, for your responses and clarifications. I think you settled most of the issues. I'm really just beginning to listen and try some of this, and I know I'll never play klez in public. (Yes, I do have a day job.) I'm just trying to round out my approach, do something a little different. I've read music pretty well for about 40 years but never got the push to play by ear. The more I try, the more I can do, but I'm really a long way from picking up all the nuances of ornamentations on my own. I guess I'm a visual learner... it's easier if I've seen it written. It makes more sense that way. But I like that slower-downer gadget idea... need to look into that.

It is frustrating when people who play excellently by ear tell me to just pick up the horn and play along, and practice till I get it right. They don't understand that I don't "get it". It's like trying to get a dyslexic kid to sound out a word... the circuits ain't there. And at my age, the neurons that haven't connected yet aren't likely to find each other now! But we keep on pluggin.... [wink]
