Professionals are students of the game.
In football (soccer) the best young players learn about the great players of the past. They watch their most famous moves. They observe tricks and techniques of the best players playing.
They try and copy them. They imitate them.
As long as your goal is to play truly and serve the show then what you use to assist you shouldn’t be judged by false purism.
All great artists learned from and copied the past masters and the current ones. Don’t think it’s impure to copy. Anything you imitate will always end up being yours anyway.
The issue is to learn from everywhere and everyone.
