Watch the Lullaby of the Leaves online guitar lesson by Mimi Fox from Jazz Performance

It's interesting to me that when I performed this particular performance, at the time I couldn't really tell if it was a "keeper" because I am my own harshest critic. It's important to realize that how you feel at the moment is not always a good barometer of the piece being successful/unsuccessful. At one point in my career I made it a habit to record every show that I did and then listen back to the recording at a later date. What I found surprisedme!Sometimes I felt really great about a performance but upon further listening was under whelmed! The converse was true too of course! The moral of the story is that there are many factors that go into how we think/feel about a particular piece at any given moment in time and so best not to decide prematurely what works and what doesn't give things time to settle.
