So, I just got back from a 2 week vacation in Florida, with no guitar. And I got back, and now I'm horrible. I was pretty good (at least I think so), but now I can't play barely any of the songs I knew. So, to the point, did this happen to anyone else after a long while not playing guitar, or are my fingers just being dumb?
i have a one week ttip comming up and it will be hard without a guitar, but anyways yes, you won't be as good after 2 weeks. you'll have to loosen your hands up and play for awhile until you get to where you were.
Take your time, do some stretches (See Rock Discipline by Petrucci for suggestions) and warm-up thoroughly. Your speed will return eventually, but not by forcing it.
I actually had the same thing happen to me after a one week trip, it really sucks but in about two or three days you'll come around.
i got grounded for 5 weeks one time (don't ask), and it took me about 4-5 days to get back to normal, but you'll get it, it'll just click in a few days at the most. just don't worry about it.
I lost about a quarter of my speed while working pretty much everyday for 2 months straight to save up for my marshall stack, it doesn't take long to bring it back up
