Re: Playing Music
I think you can get joy out of music, whether you play with other people in public or alone in your basement. I don't think one's better than the other, it's all music and the purpose of music is entertainment, enjoyment and expression.
I am lucky enough to not only play with talented musicians almost every day, but also to get paid for it. Music for me is more than my passion, it's my living. It's a modest living, but I consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to do what I love.
