" I just played as I felt the music. "
This is something I've always said when asked "where did I study music?"
Sure, studying music is great, but you have to feel that music or all that learning simply goes to waste.
The only music I studied was drumming but that was just for about a year but dropped it. Playing drums in an apartment just didn't cut it, especially at **ahem ** 3am. I also moved around a lot at that time.
