Hi guys,

I have this problem where i over think (things like am i strumming right/did i hit that string hard enough etc) when i am playing the guitar. Anyone got any tips as to how i can stop over thinking when i am playing? I know it probably is hindering my progress. I have tried to play with a clear mind but it just doesn't work..

Thanks

Hi!

I play the violin, piano and organ and I get similar problems sometimes. If I start over-thinking, I usually make a mistake and the piece goes badly, but I focus on one thing. I just think about the dynamics, like whether I'm going to play softly, loudly or something. It really helps me and I hope it helps you!!!
