Right on, that's what I've been realizing...but actually that statement can be seen in two ways, two valid ways: My thought is that if one plays with more musicians (who may or may not be experienced, how can you really score skill level anyway?) one gets better...or how I think you meant it, "if one plays with musicians that have a lot of experience, or more than you do, in areas you would like to improve, you will get better"

I didn't feel prepared even though I was as prepared as I'd ever been, if that makes any sense. I wrote it off as not wanting to do solo acoustic gigs solely for the rest of my life but I'm sure it was nervewracking seeing the lineup and knowing how seasoned the rest of the musicians were.
