I read this in context of a political article I will not link to, so as not to upset any anti-politics rules. The comment in itself, though, is not political. Iwas made in reference to people that claim professional level ability: "It is easy to find out who is a REAL professional or just an amateur claiming to be professional but this is only my test, however never failed me so far. IF a claim to be a “professional” in any profession plays a musical instrument at an exceptional level, that individual is 99% likely that he/she is a REAL professional. Period. Somehow, the ability to play a musical instrument at an exceptional level is, what separates the boys from the men. Take it or leave it but it never failed me yet." I'm not sure what to make of it, but it sounds good at first read.
