Hi Manny, I'm having a hard time lately getting out of my own head. I'm always in analysis mode and have fulfilled the old "paralysis through analysis" saying. So, how do you suggest letting go of that bad habit? Here's what I've come up with: -changing my goal from playing perfectly to playing musically and saying "whatever happens happens" -stop practicing excerpts until slightly before auditions...but practice much more solo/etude rep I need to change something because I'm really just bored with the whole thing for the time being. Oh, and here's another question for you...how do you get out of the "playing by feel" thing and start listening and "playing by sound"? Thanks!
