Focus and dedication matter....


got my first guitar more than 50 years ago: folk music was popular and I learned to play around record players and camp fires. Every kid back then wanted to play music and our idols were the artists we heard on the radio or saw on television: Dylan, The Beatles, Peter Paul and Mary, Paul Simon, James Taylor and so many more. I’ve seen lots of performers over these last 5 decades: when we saw Taylor the other night at Caesar’s the songs and the memories they evoked were stunning. Many musicians made it to the top: some stayed there, others didn’t, but watching James play and sing made me appreciate how hard it is for anyone to stay on top. It’s the same for any profession: you’ve got to work hard, remain focused and dedicated, and keep on playing if you want to make it to the top. Remember than when you’re trying to make your way today.
