I suppose we all have our own unique musical journey. It may seem strange, but it was a version of this piece by G F Handel that was probably one of the most important learning experiences I had. I had a recording that I listened to a lot and tried to play along to it. Obviously the more you practice, the better you become.  And I ended up being able to play all this work with no effort. So was the track I used performed by Rick Wakeman? Keith Emerson? No, it was done by the English singer Lynsey de Paul. Thank you Lynsey.....I owed you a lot :)
