Just wanted to share some experiences I’ve been having hoping it helps some of you.
But first I really want to thank @Giorgio for creating this section.
Now back to subject.
There is one particular exercise which has been giving me a little bit of trouble.
For some days I could gradually raise the tempo each day, then on some days I was totally unable to play it at the same speed and had to lower the speed again, almost like starting all over.
Well, I didn’t let that discourage and, finally, every day I can raise the speed a little bit while playing it clean and precise.
So, my point is: don’t let some bad days discourage you. Keep pushing and, eventually, you will get out of the umbral.
Kiko himself has mentioned bad days happen. It happens to everyone. Then we can also have great days when it seems everything is working so good and the hands are flying.
Practice, practice, practice. And each obstacle we defeat, is one more inspiring moment to going further.
