Re: Does This Happen to you??
I have had this happen a lot, where I improve after a hiatus. My running improves 10 fold after some time off. The key for me is not too much time off, especially with the guitar. If I go more than a few days, I do play better, but I forget the songs that I have memorized and have to relearn them.
With the guitar, I will struggle with a certain technique for a while, like pull-offs, and then after a little break I do it just like I'm breathing. Maybe thinking about things too hard is a self-defeating road block.
BTW-I'm having a hard time pulling-off and not catching the string below. Can anyone give me any tips on how to avoid this. Pulling off the bottom string is obviously not a problem.
