“You know the difference between the musicians who made it big and those who didn’t?”
Top jazz guitarist, Mike Moreno, was talking at an exclusive masterclass a few years back.

I witnessed some incredible playing at that masterclass. I got great advice on a range of topics.
But the most important thing I learned came from the 12 words that Mike said next.
