Looking to improve your playing? Slowing down helps you break through barriers, no wizardry required. Don’t worry, even pros catch themselves speeding up, which often leads to anxious hands and a cluttered mind. 🤯
The Art of “Ridicu-Slow” 🕰️
First off, pick a Chunk and try playing it at a snail’s pace. Feel the notes, let your hands comfortably reach their destination, and bask in the moment. Notice how the tension melts away? 💆♀️
Deep Dive with the Metro-Gnome 🎛️
Now, do the same with your trusty Metro-Gnome. It may feel awkward at first, but once you sync up, you’ll unlock a whole new level of musical satisfaction. 🤩
Balancing Act ⚖️
Slowing down might be easier on your hands, but it’s a whole new game for your brain. The music will sound different. Juggle between a comfy medium tempo and your snail pace. Use the Metro-Gnome to keep you honest: Set it to 90 bpm for medium speed and cut it in half for the slow tempo.
Never underestimate this core practice strategy. It’s not just a phase; you’ll lean on it throughout your musical journey. 🌱
