A lot of classical players can read music great and everything, but the whole rhythm thing – maybe they don’t feel how exact it needs to be to make rock ‘n’ roll rock.

-Steve Morse of Deep Purple


I have found this to be true. Some classical musicians can’t rock out. Some can’t swing. Some can’t improvise. It’s just a different beast and it doesn’t work for everyone. But of course some (many?) rock musicians can’t play classical either. Just the way it goes, yes?
