“Take four toy blocks and make something interesting.” This is something Seth Godin asks people to do when he meets them.
He Says; “People hate this.”
If you were a kid, this would be no problem. As adults there is no right answer. We’re scared. We don’t want to look childish. We ask; “What’s interesting about toy blocks?”
Music is the same. Harder, maybe. There are twenty-six letters in a set of toy blocks but only twelve notes.
Take four of those notes. Make something interesting.
You can’t do it if you try.
You can do it if you play.
