Morgan says MÉTIS MUSIC IS DIFFERENT FROM
NORMAL MUSIC THAT YOU WOULD HEAR
IN OTHER PLACES BECAUSE THE
PATTERNS AND THE TIMING IN THE
MUSIC IS DIFFERENT.
WHEN I'M PLAYING I DON'T REALLY
THINK ABOUT THE MUSIC BECAUSE I
JUST KNOW THE MUSIC AND WHEN I
KNOW WHAT SONG I'M PLAYING MY
FINGERS JUST KNOW WHAT TO DO.
I LIKE PLAYING MUSIC WITH MY DAD
