Like practically all of you, i sometimes have days where my guitar playing for some reason or another isn't up to scratch. I'd assume professional artists get this too, but what if they get it whilst on tour? I dont think a professional band as big as AC/DC would go on stage playing sloppily. How do they overcome this?

Professionals just get paid for what we do. They have days without inspiration and they have days they suck at guitar. They just deal with it.

They just work/press thought it

I once read that even kirk hammett sometimes plays bad some days and thinks "wow I suck today" but he still presses on.

I think someone told me that some lessons by tommy emmanual (sp?) in the magazine i collect he does ofter apologise saying his hand is cramping today, but he still trys to give the lesson (his lessons look abit to advance for me at the moment)

I'm sure there's no one answer one to this, since everyone, even pro's deal with it their own way but I'd image they just do it. I mean they're getting paid, and no one is gonna call them out for missing a few notes or messing up. Plus, when I was playing gigs more often I seemed to have less days that a guitar didn't feel right in my hands.

I've played as a sideman, and the answer is you suck it up and play anyways. Plenty of bands go on plenty of stages "playing sloppy". No decent musician wants to do it, but sometimes you have a room full of paying customers and no other choice. Hell, I played a gig with a broken finger on my fretting hand once.

One thing that does seem to help is to simplify your parts where possible. Well, that and strong coffee.

Most professionals have just reduced their mistakes to a minimal level. Even Joe Satch and Jeff Beck have crap nights. Just hope you didn't drop $60 to see that show!
Oh yeah.
