I love , but it's always been a skill I considered as something I would never get the hang of.
And while I still don't think I'd ever be good at it, after tonight I think I can at least learn the basics of it after all. :)

They give a brief but decent overview of the history of the standard at least. :)
Will be interesting to hear what they have to share about the machine. :)

If I could learn overnight to create in one specific genre, I think it might actually be ...

I've been listening quite a bit to tonight, but I've had to check a couple of times already to make sure I wasn't listening to instead.
