How do you see the world? Through rose-tinted spectacles, gloomy black shades or just a pair of regular reading glasses?

In the life of a muso, there will always be slip-ups. A snapped E-string or a broken reed here and there, and probably an uninformed accompanist who goes at twice your tempo WITHOUT ANY WARNING.

*OK, breathe*
