slow down!

on a blogging roll today, but i’ve felt :idea:inspired:idea: on the psg recently.

not good at it, but inspired!

another thing I’ve found really helpful to my practising is playing really really slowly.

just taking a phrase and really slowing it down, paying attention to every detail I can think of. not just playing the right note but being able to craft and nurture every little moment of its existence.

these were things I concentrated on:

vibrato – slowing it down, varying the frequency and depth

the transition of the pedal changes in relation to the bar changes

the volume pedal – where in the phrase to i want to back off or swell
