Saw another thread similar to this, just curious if anyone is having the same experience. I'm pretty sick with an awful cough and a high fever. I'm not completely bedridden, but I don't do allot of moving. I managed to do an hour or so of practice today, but it was definitely tough to make it through! My hands just feel sore and my playing just doesn't sound great. I don't feel very coordinated. I usually practice 1-2.5 hours a day. I'm starting to think practicing while i'm this sick is simply a waste of time. Anyone else have this happen to them? Any tips/comments? p.s. While missing school is nice , I'm trying to get better ASAP, my high school orchestra/jazz band is leaving on tour to Mexico this Thursday!
