>Non-fiction – "Effortless Mastery"

>”Effortless Mastery” is a book by a jazz pianist name Kenny Wener about how to become a better musicians. The book is not much about actual technique but about your attitudes towards music. The title refers to the observation that most master musicians seem to perform with extreme ease – efforlessly – yet what they play is wonderful (check out some videos of Wes Montgomery, my favorite jazz guitarist, in YouTube).

Althought I enjoyed reading this book, the authors suggesstions do not paticularly apply to me – I still have a long way to go in basic mechanics of playing and understanding music, before the attitudes he talks about would be a problem.
