I admit it... while doing some searching on the internet I found another forum. While I didn't join (didn't seem near as active as this one), I did run across an interesting thread that brought up the question:
"How to listen to classical music"
Basically the person was trying to understand "how to get it" in terms of listening pleasure and was self-evaluating his style. In turn a couple of replies and sharing their way. It brought up in my mind whether or not I "get it". After some thought, I have come to the conclusion that I don't. I know what I like and can pinpoint some things about it that I like - in probably what is a very layman's version and language.
So anyway I thought this would be a great subject to explore over here and discuss with those interested in sharing their experience knowledge and for us newbs to reflect and speak on as well.
