Ok, so I've mentioned this once or twice before in another thread somewhere, and I guess everyone's pretty sick of me starting threads all the time, but! I am really concerned about my playing. I've been trying to practice more than I usually do during the summer, but my playing just seems to be getting worse somehow/for some reason. I'm missing notes all over the place, plucking the wrongs strings, my hands and wrists are cramping and tensing up after a few seconds of playing, and my timing is all screwed up. I keep messing up simple straight 8s fingerstyle lines. I used to have really solid timing with those but now, I don't know what's happened. My mind goes completely blank when it comes to improvising or playing fills beyond standard pentatonic funk/rock (Flea) style stuff. It's frustrating the hell out of me. I don't know why it's happening but I thought practicing more made you a better player?
