    Good comment about not only playing but also “seeing yourself in the mirror” – perhaps by playing with others.
    I’m sure many people – guitarists in particular – would find funny things in rhythm, such as rushing or slowing down or other distortions!

    Nice interview!

    The value of the score is also a good point.
    Sometimes “distortions” in ones playing come from disregard of things, that you’d have found – had you spent more time analyzing the score!
