re: improvisation and performance

Well I'll never actually call myself a jazz player. As an improvisor when 
I play a note that I consider 
wrong I do play it again and try and change my perception as to making it 
a right note. I love 
dissonance and those notes work well for me. At this point I just think of 
them as unexpected notes - 
was going for something else but everything underneath shifted. 

You are probably right about the jazzers though - they have a much tighter 
framework to be in. I do 
think fear of playing wrong notes makes for a major block to playing and 
that the play it again idea 
gives a way of sidestepping this and being a better performer. And yes, 
eventually they just become 
alternate notes....
