When I first arrived at the studio, Tim was about to give a guitar lesson to a new student. Since it was the student's first lesson with Tim, they spent a good deal of time figuring out what was left to teach. This guy had a lot of experience playing by feel and by ear, but he never learned to read music very well. This encounter reminded me of a thought that had been bouncing around in my  head for the last few weeks: the difference between playing by ear and feel as apposed to playing from sight and sheet music.
