    Sounds like you may be left brain dominant, more analytical than creative. I'm more right brain dominant. But again, my limits stopped at Jazz improvisation on the keys. I was a decent ROCK keyboardist. If I stuck with it, I'm sure I could have made it a career, albeit not a very lucrative one. Jazz, on the other hand, was beyond my scope of talent-sets. If I stuck with it, I could have been mediocre, and that wasn't something I was comfortable with.

    Still in the car taking a lunch break. I could easily flip on Sirius XM Radio and will do that later, but for now I'm listening to the Stingray Music App on my phone fed to my car audio system.

    I think that taking a whack at trying to play yourself at least carries the possibility that it'll change how you listen. I keep trying myself; I'll never be any good, but when I get tired of struggling and put the horn down and go over and turn on the stereo, and listen to someone who really can play, it sounds spectacularly good. It's hard to take great talent for granted when you're painfully reminded on a regular basis how hard it is to get that good. ;)

    Horns. Yikes. I have such little talent for that. I wanted to be Herb Alpert when I was 8 years old and my father got me a new Conn Coronet to play in Band at school. I was TERRIBLE, and that has to be all caps. I picked up a used Alto Sax when I was about 23 and played that for about a year. I'm better with reed instruments it seems. I could make the Sax sound a bit "sweet" after a year. The Trumpet? Just terrible.

    You are correct. Having played in Rock and Jazz bands (Keyboards - Organ and Piano), gives me a different perspective on listening. And when I hear RAW talent, it tends to blow me away more than before I played, because I realize the effort it took to get to that level and I appreciate it more.
