Re: Playing an instrument vs. building an instrument...

Well said... :)

 Although, as I lack any real talent for 'vision', I have to rely on the
'improvistational process' of creation... The only vision I am exercising
is keeping my eyes (well, ears) open for something I perceive as 'new',
not necessarily better... For me, this technique is applied to both my 
development and my music... A never ending series of 'what ifs', which is,
at some point, observed, and measured for pleasure, by me, and either 
to the wind, or added to my collection of usable ideas...

 And, as Rick implied, viva la differance... :)
