Apologize in advance for all of these very basic questions as of late, but there are so many players here with so much wisdom it’d be foolish not to take advantage.
Anyway, how do you guys make your playing more accurate? I can play so many things, but so few of them can I play perfectly. Then when I play at practice with the band, I’m even sloppier. Then when I play live in front of a crowd, I’m even sloppier than that.
So how do I shore up these issues? Is it just repetition? Playing until I can’t play it wrong? Does it help to play it slowly as possible and then increase it via metronome?
It’s frustrating because things I have absolutely no issue with, like the chorus to “Sweet Home Alabama” will randomly give me trouble at a practice session and I’ll fumble it.
