Thanks for posting this!
It gets you "centered"! When you start experiencing some problems during your practice session... go back to it!
And, paraphrased from #15:
After many years of practicing, after thousands of dollars for lessons and after many performances in solo (even when I forgot to zip up my pants), I have learned one very important lesson. You've got to WANT that note that you are going to play. It has to be part of you emotionally, psychologically and physically. You have to feel what you are playing.
The interesting thing about dbacon's posts is that they need editing. It appears as if someone got mad on 4-28-2007 and decided to "edit" their posts!!
So true. Wanting it and physically producing the notes is very important all instances but especially true at my racetrack gig. The sheer monotony of playing those 34 call to post notes 10 to 13 times a day can lead to the mind wandering. If I don't mentally play those notes while I am physically doing so, I may flub. My mind must be engaged so there is no mistake.
