“Only play what you hear. If you don’t hear anything, don’t play anything.”
– Chick Corea
Most people involved with music has heard the name of Chick Corea. He came about the same time as Herbie Hancock and has developed his style through the years. One thing he has focused on is to deliver a very high musical quality. Some people like his playing and others may think he is to technical. I leave that to you to decide. For me he is a great musician. The examples below gives you a brief view of his playing.
