Yes! I think skill level is essential in getting the 'Muse' to visit. I do
not believe it is a 'jack hammer effect', nor simply a psychological state
educed by droning which is purely physical (so, Larry, go ahead and
pooh-pooh this all you want). If it was simply a physical reaction everyone
would be able to easily attain that musical 'zone' where genius and magic
happen. Don't remember who remarked on this state saying something like:
'when every note you play is right, and you can't play a wrong one.'
This is a nice quote about the Muse visiting:
