This has always happened to me....in everything I do....I'll have good days and I'll have bad days. When I raced (running) I would have some days where I would just call my miles "trash miles" because the run was awful and worthless....and when this happened on race day it was atrocious as all my training went for nothing.... Now this happens with my playing. Sometimes I wake up, pick up the fiddle or mandolin and everything is just perfect....other days...I can't even get my fingers on the right strings. This was the case last night. Sailor's Hornpipe is one of my favorite tunes to play on both instruments....I play it all the time and know it like the back of my hand, yet last night I couldn't even get the pick to pick right......AYYYYYYYY
.....you know God has a sense of humor
......I think He does this (give us good and bad days) to get a chuckle... (Obviusly His sense of humor is a lot better than mine....
