In the past year the longest gap between practices I took was 2 days…this year we went on a family trip and I just resumed playing after a 10 day break.
My fingers hurt again!
My fingers don’t remember where to go!
My head doesn’t remember pieces that I was really confident I knew!
Crazy how fast it goes.
The pain will go away and the memory will return.
This year my longest period without playing was around 2-3 weeks - from a song I had ready to record I was basically starting from scratch we have all been there!
… and you know what James? There will be times when you pick up your guitar, play something you haven’t played for a while and it’s a smooth as silk.
It’s like riding a bike really, get on that saddle and pedal some!
I was in the same boat last Summer and started a thread about travel guitar recommendations. I still haven’t bought one. Maybe it’s time to start a thread on this new site.
Here it is.
Travel guitar - any recommendations?
You may need to pump the tires up first though !
