    Hey guys,

    Been working hard these past 2 months, and 1 month before that i hadi njured my fingers, now just starting to slowly get back into playing... but, i feel i'm starting out way worse then I left of, and it's extremely frustrating. Will this pass? Will i get some skill back? *sigh*

    What you describe is completely normal, and cannot be avoided. Just remember - the higher the level you reach before you lay off, the higher the level you will come back to when you resume.

    Bass is like anything else in life - you have your good days and your bad days, your ups and downs. Don't give up because of a bad day or a bad experience. It's all a learning experience. We have all gone through a similar thing.

    All these guys have great things to say. I'd like to add this: give yourself permission to have a bad day once in a while. Don't always be in competition with yourself, by saying "well I did that yesterday". Some days are just better than others, have them and move on.
