Feel free to ignore my words

Someone wrote in a (much lengthier) Facebook comment:

“I don’t understand how you get from point A to point B. It doesn’t logically make sense to me in thinking about it, and in actively trying it I don’t find that the technique helps ME get the results you suggest it should…

I just hear a certain kind of thinking constantly. It’s always “you’ll know it when you see it” or “just play what feels right” or “I don’t want to cloud my playing by reading a book about it” … pick a similar phrase, I’ve heard thousands by now….

I’ve seen many players use that kind of philosophical line of thinking to justify why their ignorance is actually superior to the knowledge of someone who’s spent time practicing mechanics and learning theory…”




This was my response:

“You’ve heard other people say similar things using them to justify their ignorance. I have, too. That, however, is not what I’m doing.

Ignore the words if you don’t like them. Do the exercises and let your mind generate its own words. This will give you the ability to learn things even from people you “disagree” with. Also, it will give you a way of thinking about things that works for you, even if it doesn’t make logical sense.”
