uproot

“When you are not the person for whom a piece of technology is ‘user-friendly,’ you experience its limitations at a visceral level, so deep-seated that it can often feel as if you are the problem, not the thing into which you’ve been shoehorned. Being forced to play the ‘right’ way helped Hendrix understand—and exploit—other, less visible systems affecting the instrument.”

Kevin Hamilton sent me the excerpt from Jace Clayton/DJ Rupture’s book, which looks great.
