Fumbling With Keys

a portrait of the classical musician attempting to play jazz:

  • this is so freaking scary
  • offbeats feel weird
  • where are the notes?? the instructions??
  • what the hell is freedom to improvise????
  • you mean there are time signatures beyond 2/4, 4/4, & 6/8??
  • how to whip out chords from thin air??
  • hmm dissonance is actually quite nice
  • major major minor minor sevenths (read: suddenly thinking of major major major major, poor guy)
  • my left hand is actually horrible at keeping rhythm
  • i will fight anyone who says jazz is stupid because damn this stuff is not easy

(p.s. title pun intended)
