Thank goodness for muscle memory
« on: December 08, 2015, 04:33:18 PM »
I am in shock. I haven't touched my bass guitar in the last nine months and it has been six months since I played my regular guitar. Feeling depressed about it I pulled out my bass and turned on my playlist of my favorite songs to play bass to. I was able to play Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds about 95% correct. It is a very hard song and I can't believe I could do so well on it. On all the other songs on the playlist I was about 98% since they are much easier. I thought I would have forgotten it all by now. God bless muscle memory.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

My muscles' memory is about when they didn't used to hurt all the time. :)

Except for the last time I tried to ride a bike I forgot how.  ;D

just day before yesterday, I was talking with my son.  He plays trumpet in his elementary school band.  We were talking about practice,. and I told him that if he wants to improve he should play scales and other stuff every day.... suggested he start with a little scale warm up piece he learned last summer.

He told me he doesn't remember how to play that scale.  He was firm taht he couldn't do it.

Then yesterday, I was helping him oil it up for a concert at school.  Asked him to play a little something to make sure everything was right with it.... so he belts out taht little warm up scale tune without even thinking... muscle memory.  Then it dawned on him.... wow what a surprise!  good stuff.

When I switch between one of my re-entrant tuned ukuleles (GCEA) and my baritone ukulele (tuned like the first 4 strings on guitar - DGBE), I'll occasionally find myself playing the "wrong" instrument. If I'm alone and not singing, I catch it on the first chord. But, if I'm singing, I can't always hear the instrument, and a few chords into the song my fingers tell me they're on the wrong strings  ???

Muscle memory is amazing. I haven't touched a guitar in six months and I haven't played Stairway to Heaven in at least a year. But I bet if I got out my guitar right now I could play the entire 8 minute piece without a problem.

I play it on an acoustic usually without any distortion. And I can only play it about twice in a row before going nuts. But it is so much fun to play. ;D
