The bain of most people’s lum!
When we only get an hour or half hour together during the week, it’s hard to remember all the things I want you to improve on- or indeed how to even go about improving them at all! Sometimes we can be so overwhelmed with what to practise, that it’s easier to bury our heads in the sand then actually work out a plan of attack!
Over the next few weeks I’m going to share with you my top tips for improving practise, consequently improving your overall playing and making you a happier piper/person in general! Don’t be fooled, I may be talking about bagpipe practise, but you can certainly apply all of these tips to any areas in your life you know you want to improve on!
So to start off these practise tips, I want you to spend some time over the next few days thinking about how you feel right now; are you tired? Physically, or mentally? Where’s your head at? Do you feel invincible? Recognising your current state of mind at the beginning of your practise sessions can be the determining factor between a successful session, or a frustrating session that leaves you feeling pissed off and questioning your life choices!
Stay tuned; next instalment will expand on how to tailor your practise to suit your mood! If you liked this reading, let me and your friends know!
