Use the force
Man, I just gotta say...
- trust yourself
- and have patience
So I heard Stayin' Alive on the radio, sent myself a text to look up the guitar tabs later.
Looked it up, struggled through it for a bit, it sounded ok.
Set the git aside for a bit, Facebooked for 5 minutes or so.
Picked up my guitar to run through the riff again...
...and it was like I couldn't do it wrong...?!
Letting your mind have a little time away from a task in order to process your new information is invaluable.
And trust yourself, let it flow, be the ball. You can do it.
And then later, return; and you'll notice more subtle details. And you'll improve, and onwards, toward perfection.
