: ok, not really lesson related, but i was just wondering how many people
: on this boardexperience this. Whether I am figuring out a tune on tape,
: or playing with other people, when everything is just right, the notes are
: dead on, and the groove is good, i get a chill down my spine and a warm fuzzy
: feeling in my heart. When something is off, whether with myself or someone
: else is struggling with a piece, there isn't anything.

: When I am figuring something out by ear, I know when I get it right becuase
: it just "feels" right. If something is wrong, I get a rather "uncomfortable"
: feeling.

It's called being "in the pocket". When that happens, the groove pulls everyone along for the ride. When you are not "in the pocket", you struggle, pushing and pulling trying to force the groove and it is a very stressful thing for a fact.
