My chromatic harmonica broke while I was attempting to learn this. :(

I recall watching an interview with Larry Adler, who recounted meeting George and Ira Gershwyn as a young man. George asked him to play the Rhapsody in Blue but Adler wasn't good enough to hack it at the time, so he said "I don't like the rhapsody."

Ira wisecracked, "Say, George, we've found somebody who doesn't like the rhapsody!" :)

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

I may have posted this before somewhere around here, but it's still the best Rhapsody in Blue cover EVAR!
