It's an insanely rewarding and awesome feeling to be able to sit down with an instrument and make music happen. And when you practice enough, sometimes there's a moment where the muscle memory all comes together and suddenly you look down and...it sounds so much like the song that you listen to all the time. And it's you who's making those notes come out of thin air! That's a feeling of wonder no one should miss.
