Giving myself permission

For months I have been practising Gershwin’s song Someone to Watch Over Me, on my sax, and I can play it beautifully apart from two little licks in the variation that I always stumble over: they are intricate and fast and I CANNOT DO THEM. Today I gave myself permission to stop trying. I have written two replacement licks that I CAN play. So now I can play this tune that I love – with a backing track – all the way through. And I love it.
