Ugh!

Just got back from practicing. I've been waiting all week for the few hours of free time I had today, and I absolutely and completely sucked!

Man...it's hard to keep going sometimes!

I know the feeling. I split my lip so bad I haven't played since last Sunday. I think today I'm healed enough to get back at it, but I hate when the rust builds up.

Hey Rory, I'm sure I'm nowhere near the player that you are but I have the same issues with sporadic playing. It's disappointing to reach a level of playing then be forced to take a hiatus and be left feeling like you're starting over. I'm sure you know this and are just blowing off steam, but it does come back pretty quickly.

Sorry that you are down right now but.... If you love to play, keep playing. Keep working toward the sounds you want or songs you want to play. Keep playing, it will get better.

Everybody has good and bad days. I hate that "I Suck" feeling. It's usually when I can't get focused mentally. Of course, a bad reed day can turn any practice session into a nightmare too.

Doesn't even have to be after a hiatus-----some practice sessions just suck for no particular reason that I've been able to figure out. I'm learning that, for me, when I detect that one of those sessions has come upon me, I cut my losses and go do something else, provided that it's just me and the horn. if it's an ensemble session, I try to be quiet and preferably invisible. Tomorrow has to be better!

Always with the negative waves...why don't you say something beautiful for a change.

edit: as long as you don't "blow" as well.

Your spirits will be lifted if the Flyers do well in The Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Hey, Since I put a new bite plate on a Brilhart #9 mpc, my Brilhart #5 and my Berg Larsen 90/1/M piece sound horrible compared... What a deal!... one mpc ruins two perfectly fine playing ones...

I'm sure you don't suck as much as I do but somehow I keep telling myself that I have gone too far to quit now after all this time and money invested in this strange apparatus.

Nah you don't... I saw the youtubes. If you want to see someone that really sucks, walk over this way.
