Re: How do you listen to a song?
I suspect all musicians listen to music in a way that it was never meant to be listened to. All the people I've ever talked to about this confirm it too.
We never listen to a tune as a whole. We are always breaking it down to noticing a bass groove, or a drum fill, or an interesting note thrown into a chord, or just how sweet a particular melodic line is..dissect ,dissect, dissect..
thats definately the story with me, anyway. On the 10th hearing, I just might kick back and listen the the piece as a whole.. ..
