worked all week on a part of my bass lesson for today and felt pretty confident in it in terms of having memorized it and it’s execution. Get in to the teachers studio and completely blew it. It’s like my brain just stopped wanting to think because I kept losing my place. I eventually got though it but it was a struggle. The teacher was just like glocke1 you’ve played similar stuff before. What the heck? I think the problem is I’ve been partying a bit more than I usually do. I was essentially abstaining from all drinking and herb smoking for the past 6-8 months and really noticed improvements in my memory and playing as a result. Kind of amazing how substances affect people differently. I know people that smoke all the time and are seemingly functional on their instrument. Me? I lose double digit IQ points.
