Ever try playing in the near dark? I find that it forces your brain to switch its efforts over from visual recognition to aural cognition. You have almost an "out of body" ability to hear yourself as others hear you. That can aid you in finding mistakes in your playing much faster. You might want to leave a night light on if your night vision isn't too good so you don't stumble over anything in the dark. Of course you can't read music this way so use something you memorized as a practice piece. I have other tips so look me up. John Schneider
