    Most days go pretty good practicing some things feel a little easier or more natural. Then maybe some things rough but still you can work through.

    Today was a day that most everything wasn't feeling too good. I just seemed off timing off holding pick seemed problematic no matter which one or how I adjusted. Scales not horrible but the songs ouch everything seemed force and iffy.

    Until after a break went and put on Ripple ( American Beauty album Grateful Dead ). Not great but somewhat better at least I am smiling now.

    OK I'm going back at it again wish me luck!

    Have several friends that use that album, (in its entirety or just a tune or two), to focus and center themselves. Sounds like you know what you need, when you need it !
    Good luck with the rest of the day.

    Glad to see this story didn't end with you sleeping it off on a park bench wrapped in old newspaper for warmth. That ol 'Ripple' has sidelined many a man bruddah.
    :D
