    I couldn't agree more with you. I had read it before on chris' site. It's a great article, it was actually one of the things that made me look at my life and realize that making a living from music CAN be done, and it's not just something a few privileged people can do, but is just like any other job (like computers and other trades) you need to be good at what you do, spend some (A LOT OF ) time researching information, an education, the right attitude and a good measure of luck and good timing... Thanks a lot Chris. I can't remember if I told you before, but I really enjoyed it.

    I agree too. Actually I mailed him after reading it and I'm attending to a jazz school! I'm not afraid anymore!
    Thanks a lot!

    I agree, it was an awesome article, very inspiring. It was one I figured I'd skim, but got so absorbed in it so quickly that before I knew it I had read the entire thing! Now that's good stuff! It gave me a bit of a new perspective, a fresh outlook on a few things, so nice to have one of those!
