As a Producer it always amazes me how bad musicians stress themselves out over not being able to get a part, that is SO simple. We all have brain-fart moments where we just can’t get our head around something that is so simple. Unfortunately, when you get tense and feel embarrassed you tend to play even worse. It is important to keep in mind that while you should strive to feel better, there is a time and place for frustration and tension and it is not when learning a part. To make yourself feel better watch Metallica’s resident bimbo Kirk Hammet struggle with a part. If one of the most idolized guitarists in the world doesn’t nail everything on the firt try, don’t expect the same of yourself. Simply get back on the horse and try again with no shame!
