Rezension bezieht sich auf: Effortless Mastery, w. Audio-CD (Taschenbuch)
First I did not want to buy this book. Mastery can't be "effortless" I thought. I believed in hard work and trying harder and practicing harder if that was not enough.
Then someday I had that book, don't know why. Started reading it. Could not stop reading it. Did the meditations on the CD. Felt relaxed and focused afterwards. Learned to get "into the inner space", like Kenny explains in the book. Picked up my guitar. Relaxed and started playing - still relaxed. Did not think about fingerings. Did not think about scales, did not try to speed over the whole fingerboard. Instead I listened an let my hands play and listened.
And for the first time in many many years THERE WAS MUSIC. Music with beauty an with a meaning. And I listened to myself playing and thought: Wow! This is really beautiful music.
I'm no esoteric/new-age freak, I don't believe in magic and I don't believe in miracles. Kennys book helped me to overcome barriers like "I must play fast to impress the audience", "I must play tricky chord tensions" "I must...."
I know I will still have to practice scales and arpeggios and I will practice. I even have to practice getting into the inner space where music starts happening. But this book showed me the way.
Thank you so much, Kenny!
P.S. This book is not for beginners. It is for advanced musicians who have the basics in music theory and have a certain control over their instrument.
