How long does it take you to warm up?
I’m sure this is one of those adult beginner issues, and it’s one that I haven’t figured out a good solution for yet. One of the things that amazes me about session players is that they walk into a session, take out their instruments, tune up a bit, and then join right in on the tunes. I’ve got to play at least five minutes of scales before my hands settle into position and I’m playing in tune and everything is coordinated—-there’s no way I can just sit down and play cold.
Is this normal? Is it one of those things that just takes a long time to improve? Can I expedite the process somehow?
This fiddle is really messing with my head these past few weeks…
