Another bad lesson, and there goes my mood along with it. I practiced so much this past week, and was so sure it would "show" in my playing, but it was just old tense Joe Positive, making mistakes and getting tense about it, and making more mistakes and getting more and more tense. And my teacher would call attention to my tenseness and say things like "if you'd just be less tense, you'd sound better." Well, duh. How many times can I say "it sounded so much better at home, an hour ago" without sounding like a whiner? Zero. I sure feel ridiculous. I'm going to be fifty years old this week. Maybe it's time to stop this foolishness.
