Thumbs up to the end of the year

The year is winding to a close, so it’s a good time to take stock.  You may be playing a lot with the events of the holidays or you may still be working on material for your family get together or to impress your cats. It is also cold and dry which is tough on your hands. Meanwhile, there is just a lot going on and everyone is busy.

All of those things certainly don’t make playing any easier.  So it might be a good time to check in with the basics and see how you’re doing.

Are your thumbs up? Are your fingers and hands relaxed?  Are you sitting up and breathing?  Do you keep up doing all the good techniques while actually playing?

You know good technique is important – making it possible for you to play better, longer, stronger.  But good technique requires awareness - and what better time than the present to give yourself the present of making sure you’re doing well?

Check in, and be sure to have your thumbs up as a strong end to the year!
