Just curious, how many of you guys can imagine what the feck you gonna hear when you seeing a pattern in MPT?


I can. Both ways too. I can see the notes and hear what they represent, and I can hear a melody in my head and visualize the notes to enter.

I'm the same. I guess that it's the same as being able to sight-read notation, or write notation manually in silence. My musical education placed a strong emphasis on this, so I guess that's where I get it from.

BV - I didn't know (or forgot ) you were classically trained.

For me....

I can't really sight read - I almost failed ear training.... however, when I improvise it is like playing chess for me - I can "feel" a direction and I can "hear" where the melody wants to go.

But also, I sometimes make mistakes - and being able to capitalize on them is really important to successful improvisation.

When I do write - I have a hazy idea what note I want but often have to correct my placement.

considering neither (so far) has entered the $35 compo I think you have a leg or two up on them :-)

Well, I'm classically-trained inasmuch as I studied music at primary/high school in a 'classical' sense, and about two thirds of my musical tuition has been 'classical'. :)

Sorry to be slightly OT.
