Is that anyway to begin a blog post? Most of this evening, I had that sense about me. I've been looking for a folder with a few scores of works in progress that I misplaced for a week. Tonight I did some serious looking, which irritated me as this took away from my practice time. At one point, after about 50 minutes of looking, I let go and began practicing.
I did an exercise on right hand accents, I picked up off a classical guitar blog. Last night I worked with this exercise for the first time and found it useful. Tonight when I moved from the exercise to playing through Here We Are, two things happened. I played with the accents in this piece to see the affect of the exercise, and I noticed that I was happier playing than when I was looking for the file. I moved onto the tremolo piece, and incorporated AT work with inhibition, as I played through the entire piece. Yesterday I noticed tension as the playing of the piece progressed, so I want to use the process of inhibition every few bars to see how I am using myself to cause this tension.
What might our world be like if we all took the time to find how we create tension in ourselves and then found a better way of using ourselves?
