Yeah, it's scary! Makes you want to look at your brain surgeon's bio-rhythm triple points before he puts you under the knife, doesn't it !

I like Dee45's idea of being able to depend on a certain level of consistency through practice, and let the flashy stuff happen if you feel it.

I've always wondered about the Canadian piano virutoso, Glenn Goulding (is that the name ?**CRS**?)-- he apparently would soak his hands in near boiling water before he went on stage. Some thought this was just his "odd" personality, but maybe he had a viable physical reason ?
