I used to be a pretty competent bassist about a year ago and I would put in at least an hour practice a day (I say practice, lets call it playing). Anyway, I have not been able to play so much other than at my local big band, but that does not push my playing so much. I have been playing my six string again for the last few days and busting out some prog standards, but I can just feel that I am not as good as I was not so long ago. Whats the best way to approach getting better again, should I just play lots or should I do exercises and stretches ETC. Should I use this as an opportunity to re-work a technique? Have any of you guys had similar problems in the past?
