A person's three-dimensional memories about his early relationship with a musical instrument, the banjo (once called the least musical of all of the instruments).
"My understanding of how annoying this must have sounded led me to park my car on the street after dinner, close all the windows -- even in the baking Southern California summer -- and practice into the night. By the time I had closed myself in my '57 Chevy, however, I was getting somewhere, and I was entranced with the sounds I could make. One tone from one string could send me into ecstasy, and here I was, making thousands of notes in thousands of combinations. The songs that I worked on in the Chevy were "Doug's Tune," "Fireball Mail," "Earl's Breakdown," "Foggy Mountain Breakdown," and "Old Joe Clark." I'm sure if that car were unearthed today, my little tunes could be found trapped in the cellulose of its seat cushions."

Steve Martin, who reminisces on how Disneyland, the Dillards, and David Lindley combined to lead him to the banjo. You knew I'd try to work 3-D into this somehow, didn't you?)
