escaping the game

i have to achieve a level of proficiency in my craft before i can escape from it.

i would not be where i am with the guitar if i decided to only learn strange techniques without learning normative guitar playing.

if i bypassed the social game and went straight into my own game

i may feel like a recluse.

or someone who is lying to themself.

i must prove myself to myself too.

to know i am above the game than to feel like i am are below it.

i cannot decide to break music theory if I first do not understand music theory.

i must master something first before i can dismiss it.

i can only transcend something once i know how to do it.

i must be able to do something artistically before i can claim not to do something for the sake of artistry.
