Just got off a conference call with one bad mofo on the team! Super happy to be able to be the Hermes of this website! My brain is a little jiggled but nothing that a glass of wine and some guitar work can't fix!
Another five hour day in the books. Today's practice wasn't as good because my mind felt like it wanted to be elsewhere. That's when I shut it off. It only started wandering because my economy Etude of 16th notes was super tricky and discouraging. But as the saying goes: "When it gets hard you know you're halfway done." It got better after about an hour of practice
Playing guitar is not about "What can I accomplish today?" but moreso "What can I learn today?" If we constantly live in the mind of achievement and not growth, we stress ourselves out rushing to get to the end. And by doing so, we miss all the important lessons along the way.
