My friend and I were talking about that off day phenomenon earlier today. You know what I'm talking about, you go to play your instrument but nothing is clicking and you feel like shit. Then later on you'll pass by your instrument, pick it up, and begin jamming. Sometime into your little personal jam you'll realize that you're not playing like shit, but now that you're conscious of it you go back to sounding like shit. I've wondered about this for a while. Are you actually playing more poorly than you usually do? Or is it a mental thing where for some reason you are more conscious of your playing and notice more mistakes and dislike the sound? Disscuss, and share your tips for overcoming this.
