In other news, I listened to myself from 1995 and I was surprisingly good. It wasn't as clean as I'd have liked, but I still have the same time. In one case I actually think it's something I could turn into a tune for an album. I feel the urge to go back in time and tell myself "you can't play like Bela yet, but you're still not that bad!" It's strange how we think we suck when we're really not that bad after all.
Of course, I'm trusting that nobody from my university days is reading this and will remind me of just how badly I really did play back then
