Reply To: Best tip for every day practice
The more steps it takes to get the instrument in hand, the less likely I will casually pick it up to play. Sometimes casual playing is what happens between too-long stretches of serious playing.
I like to pamper myself when I sit down to play. Either a cup of hot tea or a glass of wine at my side makes the time special. Even if I only take a couple sips and then forget all about it because I’m engrossed with playing, it helps me get started.
