Been back playing for about a year =-- still can't find LG just any time I want to --and the rest of the hand is helped with a "cheater" I have under the D hole. -- How long should it take to get the memory back??? Thanks for any help anyone can come up with.!!

Default Re: Muscle Memory

SO very sorry to hear of your trouble. I find I am still recovering from a two level cervical spine fusion of almost three years ago... my technique and consistency are still improving! I find that slow, relaxed, accurate repetitions (with breaks) are the key. I practice things two ways - I'll pick the three most egregious technical bits, play 10 slow, accurate, relaxed reps of the first bit 10 times, then do the same for the other two bits. Then I'll play each bit almost back-to-back, once only, repeating 10 times.

I wish you the best of luck. If you are anything like me, maintaining a positive ("can do!") attitude is key, even on (especially on?) bad days.
