I'd like to think music is purely for enjoyment, but I'd be lying if I said I don't ever envy another person's talent. And I heard myself once say that I'd never pay to hear a person play who couldn't play better than me and thought I was a jerk for saying it. But it's all true. I'll be the first to admit, that a musician ripping it up transports me to other realms, but at the same time, I often find myself listening for mistakes at live performances... looking for a reason to criticize a performance. Having high expectations and seeking perfection is a burden for everybody and can take the joy out of a lot of things, but sometimes, I can't shake it.
