REST PERIOD

by greenbamboostudios

I have been advised that I would be well served by listening to Oscar Peterson and Bill Evans.

I’m supposed to be listening for the space between notes … what is played and what is left unplayed.

As opposed to my natural inclination to  fidget and fill every bar with activity and movement.

I’ve been told that I have trouble leaving the rests alone.

Even though I know full well that one the greatest axioms is: Just do your best, and God will do the rest.

So I’m going to be deliberate in giving myself a little more room to breathe.

And more conscious to appreciate both the full and the empty.
