because when I play a little bit as well, and when I was approaching certain things, I'd realize I know it doesn't sound right, but it's wrong and I hear that it's wrong, but my hands can't make it right. And it's like, really frustrating loop because you notice the deficiency or the inaccuracy and you try it again. You try it again and it's like it's not working. Uh, so, you know, I guess maybe you said that you took a break and would go write some songs. Do you come straight back to it, or how do you deal with those moments where you're super frustrated like Sometimes I'll only practice for like, 15 minutes or 20 minutes. I'll like run vocal scales for 20 minutes. Or like right now. For instance, last night I'm working on his finger, picking Paul Simon. Um oh God, still crazy after all these years and literally I got through the first two staffs, which is literally like the intro. It's like four chords, But the way that the cords move there, it's just like it's not actual like it's not like, Oh, you're playing in a flat minor. It's like no It's just like this weird formation of one. So I'm like sitting there. I did it for, like, 15 minutes, and I'll go back again tonight. But I think it's like I've as I've gotten older. The frustration level has kind of calmed down because I know enough now after I've learned so much that I'm like, Okay, like it'll come like just knowing that you keep kind of chipping away at it like it will come. And that's that consistency that's like, really important. With learning music, you have to be really consistent with it. And if your fingers aren't getting it like, you have to do it so slow, that's the key is like as slow as you possibly can because then you're physical memory. Well, then take over more. You'll be able to program your physical memory more by doing it slow. So a lot of times when people learn stuff, they kind of blow through it like I used to do that a lot of fiddle tunes or like Irish tunes, and then I would try to do it slow and you mess up a bunch so it's like if you can do something, really, really slow musically, you know you got it in your body and you just speed up the tempo. Yeah, because that's that's where you want it. You don't want it in your mind. You want it in your body. You want to be able to, like, feel work through it. Not necessarily think through it. Because, really, I find there's this awesome book. Effortless mastery. My God, Who is it? Kenny Shepherd. Ken Shepherd. I'm not sure who's ever list mastery. Look it up. It's and it's It's a lot about that. Words like the mental mind it's It's based off the idea of meditation as well. Same thing, because when you play, it's the best to get into that meditative state where your body is playing the instrument, not your mind, like you're feeling through it. And is that book specifically for a musician, or is he a musician? The writer he is, he's a sax
