Directions for Singing (..experiential-ly)
 From John Wesley's Select Hymns, 1761
 "That this part of Divine Worship[Spiritual Practice] may be the more 
acceptable to God [The Unified Field], as well as the more profitable to 
yourself and others, be careful to observe the following directions.

 Above all sing spiritually. Have an eye to God [The Unified Field] in every 
word you sing. Aim at pleasing him [It] more than yourself, or any other 
creature. In order to this attend strictly to the sense of what you sing, and 
see that your Heart is not carried away with the sound, but offered to God[The 
Unified Field] continually; so shall your singing be such as the Lord will 
approve of here [on Earth], and reward when he [It] cometh in the clouds of

 Good question. First of all I'd recommend practise, practise, practise. He 
could start by hitting one note at a time, just one note and listening to it, 
how it sounds, vibrates and how the sound slowly disappears. Just that, very 
simply and innoscently create one sound, and then listen to it, how pleasing is 
that sound, does it sound better doing it in another way ?  And again, and 
again, and again. By doing this one acquires an understanding of the basics and 
a love for the note itself. Without this basics one is lost and will never 
achieve anything. One should understand that the ability to play fast on any 
instrument is not the same as playing music. To be able to play slowly is the 
hallmark of a professional.
  Many amateurs, like Curtis, make this mistake; they skip the basics and try 
to convey too much.
 I recommend you to listen to the video I posted by Robert Johnson. Where is 
the showmanship in this ? There isn't any because his heart is in it. When you 
listen to this, perhaps you better understand my disgust when fellows like 
Curtis comes along claiming to play the blues.
