Winter’s coming. I think everyone is aware of that, at least on the northern hemisphere.
Here in Central Europe there is just about 7* Celsius outside at the moment, so it’s fairly cool.
Worse yet, in my room it’s not too warm either - my fingers and arms are as stiff as a piece of wood.
It’s not pleasant at all, my picking speed is 150BPM tops at the moment, not to mention it’s mildly irritating not to have full control over my own fingers.
Warm ups become essential, but here’s the deal - sometimes I can warm up for hours, and have mediocre results, and as soon as I put my guitar down all the effort goes to waste. Sometimes the warm up leaves me more stiff due to muscle tension.
Do you guys have any advice on an effective warm up that will actually work?
