I disagree with Martin and Marilynn regarding the (lack of) usefulness
of short bursts of music (i.e. of less than formation length).
I would sometimes be very grateful to have the ability to have 2, 3, 4,
5, 6 or even 7 bar bits in order to have them STOP at exactly that point
- there being a valid reason for this, of course.
I disagree that this leads to mechanical execution. the point of the
exercise is to first of all let people get their brains round what they
are attempting. The body will take over later.
