The causes of a technical problem fall into five basic categories…
- Playing from an unnatural starting , one that is out of balance, awkward, or rigid.
- Using the the wrong body parts for the job.
- Using the right body parts for the job but using the wrong motions.
- Using the right body parts and the right motions, but either too much motion or too little motion.
- Using either too much force or not enough force to accomplish the task at hand.
And so, the solution to a technical problem is found by exploring those same five questions:
- Am i playing from a natural and free and easy but ready to play starting place?
- Am I using the right body parts for the job?
- Am I using the right motions for the job?
- Am I using the right amount of motion?
- And am i using just the right amount of force?
All the lessons that follow are going to explore these questions in a way that will enable you to discover for yourself how to play with freedom and ease.
