TIP OF THE DAY
Tuesday, April 1, 2008
An excellent way to listen to yourself is to record yourself and play it back. There is a flip side of this. When you play and you are recording, imagine the listener - which will be you at some point in the future - and when you play, put out a sweet energy or even some love, and imagine that this good stuff will flow right to that listener.
Of course, if you do it right, you'll get a treat when you listen to the playback. That sweetness and emotion won't fix the detailed problems you have in your playing, but they can give the entire song a feeling of warmth and make it easier to listen to yourself playing.
