My sister recommended this book to me. It is quite an adventure and well worth the journey. Victor receives a series of visits and lessons that bridge music, spirituality, and our human gifts. The writing is fresh and innovative, with many priceless insights.
The contents include:
- Grace Note
- The Beginning
You should never lose the groove in order to find a note.
If you stopped playing notes, Music would still exist.
Every time you move, and every time you play a note, a piece of yourself is left behind.
Are you using magic?
Yes I am. It's called technique.
A child playing air guitar plays no wrong notes.
Most people play louder to get someone's attention, but getting quieter can stop a bull from charging.
If you pay attention correctly, it won't matter if you are in another room or another state, you will still be able to feel the pulse.
Doctors use lasers to operate. Music, in the right hands, can do the same thing.
Anything, including physical actions, can be phrased.
Life is a lot like Music. You've gotta put some rest in there.
We think that music stops at the ears. That is a mistake. Vibrations can be felt in all places and at all times, even with the eyes.
- The Dream?
In all your musical years, when have you ever truthfully said 'Thank You' to your bass guitar?
- Back to the Beginning
What is more dangerous to a person: success or failure?
