I do like to sing things my way, but sometimes I have to be a part of a larger system and sing in the chorus of others. It's good for me. I have never been a pro with harmonizing, but I try - really, I do.
I listen to Frank here and do look forward to having a reflective space soon where I can sing "I did it my way, sort of, but from learning how to compromise the notes yodeled by those with more expertise."
The point is, I'm participating in the music. That's a good thing. Before Wonka could open his chocolate factory, he had to be apprenticed somewhere.
