It’s nice when you can blame at least some of your crappy playing on your crappy equipment/set-up…. but when the crapiness is to the point that you’re adjusting your technique to compensate…and developing physical problems as a result (exhibit A: my twingy wrist)….. well, that’s just dumb.
I had my orchestra concert last weekend. For whatever reason, I failed to work myself into anything resembling a frenzy this time around, which was nice, but I also failed to practice in the days leading up to the concert, not so nice, but not the end of the world.
Orchestra-wise I just have a choral gig left, and so long as I continue to drill the few tricky spots, it should be fine and I’m looking forward to it, but now I can turn my attention to chamber-music and an attention-to-basics approach in my practice sessions.
