“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”
I have mixed feelings about this quote. I recall some college courses, where brilliant professors left students in a confused daze before they were two minutes into a class. Understanding is a prerequisite, but those who can provide simple explanations have a gift that goes far beyond understanding.
We are just beginning to consider an electric guitar for Ms. Muffin and I was delighted to find an article on Les Paul vs Stratocaster. It was written in simple language, only took a couple minutes to read and had a six point summary for those who wanted an even quicker explanation. I could easily see that we’d want to do more research on Les Paul and there were links to help me do that. After a lot of confusing searches, it was a relief to find that simple explanation. Now I just need someone to explain how we’re going to pay for it!
