Practice strategy: Alternate between easy and hard
If you’re learning something that’s difficult (new tune or technique), try alternating between that and something that’s relatively easy. When you switch from the hard thing to the easy thing, you give your brain a break. It’s a nice way to connect with a good sound and reset the body.
Say you’re learning double stops for the first time. Practice this for 5-10 minutes. Then switch gears and play single notes on an open string, a simple scale, or a simple tune. Having done that, dive back in to the challenging thing.
This practice is also a form of kindness to yourself. It’s a way of accepting where you’re at while working at your edge.
