As someone who loves and plays music, I find it very refreshing to read about someone starting to make music. It's both inspiring and thought-provoking. Also, Steve's ability to correctly perceive his own strengths and weaknesses in developed musical ability will help him learn at a very quick rate. This is refreshing to see because I feel many people get hung up at a certain point in their musical development (myself included) because of a blockage to develop their current musical weaknesses.
Also, Steve, whom I presume is usually an early-riser, found that there is something about making music late at night that is special. I have wondered about this for some time. Currently, I believe different types of music can be created at different times. Also, as long as you feel fresh and not tired, the longer you are awake, the more your musical brain feels warmed up.
I wrote a small article about practicing music with truth, love and power
, and I look forward to reading more about Steve's ideas on the truth, love and power in music. Whenever I think of truth, love and power in music, I am reminded of John Coltrane. His later work seemed to embody these ideas.
