Steel Guitar Rag
Frank. 1962-1963 record. (His composition teacher's record perhaps).

To the Editor:
Two aspects of music may contribute to “success.” First, music students always strive to conquer something just out of reach. The satisfaction of mastering a difficult étude is short-lived; then it’s on to a new, slightly too hard assignment. For type-A high achievers, music lessons leave no room for complacent self-congratulation.
Adult amateurs get a paradoxically opposite benefit: a reminder to “enjoy the process.”
