I played every day 4-5 hours for years and years. Gave it up - for good - long time ago - too many reasons to share now, but suffice it to say - no good ones! Was asked to perform - classical, nothing too technical and began practicing 1 hr or so per day - Little Arban, a little Clark - scales, etc I find that it is not organic as it once was - I have lost much in the last 25 years of not playing. Now that I don't need the money - I would love to get back at it - how long does it take to really play the way I once did 25 years ago? Does anyone have a similar experience?
