After watching a few open stages and jazz gigs here in the city, I decided to start playing again. Thought my skills would be rusty and, well, after a few hours of practicing I decided that with a strict rehearsal regimen every second night and most weekends I can work my way up to “rusty skills” in a month… or two. :)So you can understand why I found the above chart pretty funny when I stumbled across it earlier this evening.
Most of us want to practice the things we’re already good at, and avoid the things we suck at. We stay average or intermediate amateurs forever.
