Hi Mr. L- This may sound like a stupid post. Of course growing up I practiced all the time (4 hours a day in high school). But now, I find that if I practice more than about 1.5 or 2 hours a day I don't get much done. My chops start feeling weird the next day, and my progress slows down. When I do about an hour a day (plus more with gigs and rehearsals), I play great all the time and stay at a much higher level. So, I was wondering what you think of this? I'm certainly not telling people that practicing less will be a benefit to them, I'm just wondering why it is to me. Thanks!
