Alright so basically whenever i play guitar after playing for a few hours or so Im able to play great and clean but If I just pick it up and try to play something I really cant play anything. Usually I like to warm up with excercises when I play but this is something that has been a huge pain lately. When someone asks me to play guitar on the spot and I try to play something its like ive lost all my ability to play. Does this go away overtime? Or is this simply just a matter of needing more practice? Im a fairly serious guitar player but sometimes its discouraging and frusturating that I can't play something that I played 24hours ago. If this is natural for every player then does anybody have any advice on how to get warmed up faster? I really need to be able to keep my skills and I feel like whenever Im able to play something the ability goes away the next day and its like im running in circles inside my practicing.

Sorry I didnt see that thread! And thanks that makes much sense to me. Thats a better of way of saying it I cant get a good consistency. Just tells me that I need to keep practicing and that I still have a far way to go in my playing. Thanks Johnny

Sometimes it depends on who your playing to but that is a very true statement. Ill always keep that in mind thanks for reassuring me of that fact.

I would add that CHICKS especially don't care about shredding. They want songs
