Over the last few weeks, I've noticed that all my band members (absolutely including me) seem to be dropping a few silly mistakes. Not random errors typical of rust / unfamiliarity, but defined repeated pinch points. These are small errors in songs we've played 100's of times without fault, yet now seem to creep in despite identifying them & trying to deal with them. Little mental blocks that stubbornly hang around.
I'm sure there's something different going on, I'm just not sure what.
Anyone else notice something similar getting back to performing?
Nope. Why? Because the band I'm in hammered songs all year last year. Even when we weren't gigging, we were learning and practicing songs. I've been playing with this band less than a year, and we are at the 70-song mark right now. I won't talk about how much gigging we did last year because every time I do, I get reprimanded by other forum members. I'll just say that we're on fire this year. If anyone wants any details, PM me.
