Levels of a Beginner, Music's Road Map & New Goals
Mike (the music guru) Odo returns for another Thursday Live Lesson. In the past, Mike and Aldrine have gone deep down the music theory rabbit hole. But this week, they have a philosophical conversation about the journey of a musician. Aldrine shares his take on what counts as a "beginner", Kahai brings up the wide range of "advanced" players, and Mike reveals the vast branching of music's road map. The guys also discuss the various levels of music, and the difficulty with ranking oneself. They talk about constantly setting new goals, and Mike offers some super sage advice. Aldrine wraps up the lesson with a hilarious and shameless Jake story.
