Why John Writes About, but Doesn't Play, Music
Ok. This is the THIRD time I've started to write this post. The first two attempts exploded from a simple explanation of my musical inadequacies into intensely personal and horrible convoluted rants. But it is important to me that I deliver on my promised post, so this time I'm keeping it simple. I never excelled ad music because of some combination of: laziness, impatience, frustration, and sheer ineptitude. People who are musically inclined amaze me because I just don't "get it." I have problems with tone and rhythm and I have absolutely no grasp of music theory. But music is such an important and powerful force that I can't be satisfied with my inabilities to create it, so I try and do the next best thing and write about it.

Not really the introspective post I was originally shooting for, but better than nothing. I'll go archive the nearly 2000 words of my first two attempts in my digiscrapbook and leave it at that.
