How will I ever get there?

The old joke in the music business is about the musician in New York City that stopped a cab driver and asked him how to get to Carnegie Hall. The cab driver answered, "Practice!" That's one of many answers to the question, "How do I get really good". Most pros will tell you that it's simply 'sweat equity'. You get out of it what you put into it. Don't worry about how hard something is. Just start practicing and playing and doing your best. Believe in yourself and you'll be there before you know it.
