The One Note

20131007-211441.jpgThe street performer played a well worn guitar with chipped paint and strings darkened through too many years of use without replacement. He played any song a passerby asked him to sing. His repertoire seemingly endless. One day a man noticed a peculiarity, and he asked the old guitar man about it. “I notice when you play, no matter what song it is you never move your fingers on the frets. When I watch others play they are always changing the place where they put their fingers. Why is that?”
“It is simple,” said the man, all those other players, they’re all looking for the note I’ve found.”
