    My favs have been said, though a little surprised Billy Shehan wasn't mentioned earlier. :p

    Best advice I've heard from anyone is him "It's not what you play, it's what you don't play" My musicianshipness (yes, I made that up) improved by 500.7% when that comment eventually sunk in.

    Guy: [Unimpressed] Hmph, sounds like she's hitting a baby with a cat.
    Lisa: You have to listen to the notes she's NOT playing.
    Guy: [Still unimpressed] Pssh, I can do that at home.
