Do you play any instruments?

Hello Howie. Thanks again for doing this.

Do you play any instruments? I know many mastering engineers that do (Bob Ludwig can play a mean trumpet from what I understand).

Never heard any of them say anything positive or negative about being a musician. What are your thoughts on it?

Years ago I was going out with this girl in a band so I decided since I have no musical training, I could pick up the bass. I mean, hey it only has four strings, how hard can it be? But we broke up, and my rockstar dreams were over.

Me not being a musician helps me be a better listener. I have no crap inside my head with theory or notation.. I just go for vibe and sound.
