Hey! This relates back to the thread of 'WHAT MAKES A GOOD SOLO,'
the kind that makes you ask, "Whoa! Where did THAT come from!?!"
(BTW: In nearly every language,
the word for breath and spirit are the same.)

Yes, Tito, some prefer NOT to use the word Spirit, and even the word "VIBES"
is more palatable than "psychic energy and intuition" for some.

Words just mire things.

As the wise JIM BEEBE said to Chris, "START PLAYING!"
