not being able to play in time isn't a "habit" as much of an "inability". it's like saying a soccer player has the habit of not kicking the ball.

i don't agree with this at all. though i think you might have meant the visual aspect, and that i agree with. it's easier to voice chords on a piano than it is on guitar.
