I practice alot. Lately it seems like I haven't been getting any better in my playing. Then today something sort of weird happened. All of a sudden I was varying my attack. Where usually I would hit the string with the same power, now I was hitting the strings lighter, and harder. What a huge difference it made! It even seemed to help with my string muting. Everything sounded way better A few of you are probably thinking that it's an obvious thing. Not to me though. I feel like my playing changed, and for the better.
