And, to paraphrase rasputin, play pieces below your ability better than you've ever played them before.
My advice too. I know guitarists who do not play one single piece of their repertoire technically perfect, not even Lagrima. I'd say those guys play too much beyond their level.
Yes. With this in mind, I've being trying to revisit the pieces I used to play and I'm trying to perfect them as much as I can because, even there's not enough time in the day to cover them all, I kind of feel like a fraud not being able to play them in one go (without the usual hiccups and pauses etc).
Yes, same with me. So many pieces, so little time...But when coming back to older pieces of my repertoire which I did not play for a while or even gave up because their level of difficulty frustrated me, I regularly observe that after a warm up period I can play them better than before. Conclusion: I acutually do improve my playing.
