Use Your Imagination

Imagination is the most powerful tool you have to improve your playing.

Before you play, imagine the sound you want – the attack, the release, the tone, rhythm, etc. Then simply play that sound. Without reacting or judging, decide what you would change in the sound. Imagine what you want and play again. Keep repeating this and you will find that your playing automatically gets closer and closer to the imagined sound.

Notice if you imagine the sensation of playing or if you think of what you would change in your technique. Let that go and return to simply imagining the sound you want. Play the imagined sound without focusing on how to play. Just produce the sound.

Your imagination is a very powerful way to learn things. It also is the most efficient and clearest way to play.
