    most of what i’ve learned has been from mistakes i’ve made. this happens a lot in playing music. often a mistake will lead to more interesting music. in fact i’ve read two how-to-improvise books that
    go into this in detail. one even had a two page guide on various ways of making mistakes for the overly trained who had difficulty making them. “mistakes are the portals of discovery”- james joyce, 1882-1941. died the year dylan was born. and dick cheney. and my kid sister. who is a great-grandmother.

    re yesterday’s hendrix story, don’t remember what kind of guitar it was. didn’t even think to notice at the time, actually.

    in 1966 i was in the night owl in greenwich village and this guy comes in carrying a guitar case. aha, i thought, he’s carrying a guitar case because he heard that’s a good way to get laid in the village. so he sits down, takes out his guitar, puts his feet up on the table, and starts playing an instrumental version of the beatle’s she said she said. it was jimmi hendrix, jimmi james at the time.

    i think it was from the silent movie series, the perils of pauline. from the time one ended with her hanging from a cliff. i didn’t look it up, might be wrong.
