Positive #3: “Mood for a day” by Yes (Steve Howe).

I really enjoy playing guitar. There is something wonderful about this song – I know I will never be able to perfect it! I thoroughly enjoy this “fact”. I love a good challenge and I think if I ever did perfect it, it would be like taming the last of the wild horses. I appreciate its difficulty. It is also a very fun piece to play – beautiful with a kind of Renaissance feel. It is also another example of what I call “The Gift of Being Wrong”. Each time I prove myself wrong about being wrong, it broadens the panorama of possibilities. Today, I appreciate this beautiful piece of music and all the challenges that go with it.
