Couldn't think of a more fitting word. My technique is oscillating a lot. What I mean is that at some period I play with a perfect technique, both with the picking and the fretting hand, and some days later it becomes distorted, greatly affecting the play. Afterwards, it takes me a day or two to revert to the previous state. The changes are not permanent but sure are annoying.

Any similar experiences and advices to stop this?

it happens to me, it depends on my mood, sometimes i just can come out with a decent riff and i sound really sloppy, and sometimes i can even shred
yeah i call them shred days, when you totally amaze urself, and then the next day or two you wanna break sumthing cause u suck badly....idk wat tis about just keep practicing i guess and play things slower and less sloppy
Yeah i have the same problem, I find that if you don't play for a day then come back to the guitar you'll play better.

if i wake up on a day off and get 10 mins in of pure going nuts, then when i come back later in the day im in shred mode. dunno how it works, but it works.
I have those days like that every once in a while. But I find that arm/hand/finger warmups and stretches usually help a ton.
