And how do you keep yourself kind of approaching the guitar in a new way? Because after playing for so long, people are prone to getting it in a habit of playing the way that they play? Yeah, that's a very good question. How do you keep learning new things and new approaches? How do you keep your mind active? Well, actually, I use covers a lot because also, I sing a lot and friends, some people like to hear covers. You know, when I do three hour gig, they they like, sometimes covers. Not everybody wants to hear three hours of French music, especially people who don't know my music beforehand and just discover me. So I learned how to play covers and all that. So I explore a lot of different covers, and I love to, uh, I'll give you a concrete example. Maybe that will speak better what I'm trying to say. But I just saw a really interesting interview on on Netflix on Nile Rodgers, a guy from from chic to have those Netflix music interviews series. I think they did one with Moby and all that, and Noel Gallagher and, um, but he was explaining how he interacted with his bass player and how the composition he would do. And those guys would come from jazz. But they wanted, you know, pop songs on the radio kind of vibe. So and with the funk. And so he simplified a bit. Is playing coming from jazz and then he always has those riffs. So I always find it was I saw that documentary. Then I started looking a bit more on how he wrote songs. So that's a way for me. That's very refreshing, because then I try to work on you know, some of the the riffs is doing and to try and understand what his mindset. Because all great artists, they're usually have kind of a know how in a recipe. And I love trying to understand what that is so and most of the time, if it's important for me to go into the details and really understand, you know what he's doing because you can play a lot of songs like Boy Scouts, scouts style, where you just simplify the cords. But then you kind of miss the essence of of what? The composer, what the guys trying to do so for uh, for example, the freaks, the shit, that song. I just decomposed and try to learn what he was doing on the guitar and understand, and that because the guy is singing at the same time, too. But he always got kind of right hand funk to it, which is, you know, and he did get lucky with daft punk. He did so many songs like So that's That always keeps me moving. And all that covers are a great tool for me to acquire knowledge in a way instead of because I'm not very good at just sitting down learning theory or learning just cold stuff. Covers are a fun way to learn in a way, you know, and discover new chords to which are always a great tool. And so that's my example. I also do a lot of old French classic tunes, and usually they're, you know, sounds from what forties fifties sixties like P F. As in Abuja. Umbrella and the arrangements are so rich that to kind of adapt the guitar and vocals is always very interesting, too, because there's so many rich chords in there. So it's a balance between, you know, because it's like orchestra, the whole thing to play it. And it's a lot of time. Pianos and pianos, different approach than guitar, but that also, you know, opens other doors for me because it's it's, um, I discovered the world's and all that. I don't have to answer your question. It does. It does. That was great. I think it's and it kind of goes back to how you're learning as a kid, I believe, you know, um, the one approach which might have been like the textbook approach wasn't sparking any joy. It wasn't fun. I mean, the plane of classic Oh, I loved it. I still have the first book when I'm playing classical guitar. It was really cool, but yeah, it's the way with top one than anything else and not not telling you as a kid that you, you know, it's kind of like training when you do sports. There's some things that are annoying to do. You need to work on on your stamina and things like that. But there's a reason why you do it. The only kind of approach I had with that school is they just force things down your throat without explaining why it's important, because when you learn an instrument or things like that, it's not. Everything is fun or it's like a recording. You know, when when you make a record, not everything is fun in the process. There's a lot of fun times, but there's a lot of stuff that's, you know, you have to set up everything right. You have to learn how to do it. You have to, you know, there's for guitar. There's a lot of body body memory to muscle memory stuff, and that's that takes hours of practice and playing on time.
