"He'd shared stages with everyone from Carlos Santana
to Randy California to Jimi Hendrix to Jimmy Page. But
the guitarist who'd taught him the most, he said, was an
old blues master he'd met when he was a kid. He'd
asked the man to teach him how to play, and the man
had responded, 'I can teach you everything I know in
fifteen minutes, then you just have to go home and
practice for fifteen years'.
It's pretty clear to me the same is true for writing, for
high jumping, and for life."
