What's the longest time... 

What's the longest time you did not touch your guitar? or did not practice?

and how did you felt, physically(hand, muscles, coordination, etc.) and emotionally?

me, the longest i have not practiced, seriously that is, maybe 2 months.

for 2 months i did nothing, touched and fondled with my guitar but didn't practice regularly or seriously.

After that, i felt I've wasted 2 months of my entire life

RE: What's the longest time... (in reply to CarloJuan

i took one week off due to an injury. before that, i took i think three days off while i was on vacation in morocco.
mentally and emotionally, i felt like absolute ****.
physically, it felt nice to give the hands a break. but i was a bit sluggish when i came back.

Well,..I dont play at all during the week. And if Im not at home at the weekend..sometimes I dont play for 2 weeks. Lately I was in vacation in combi with joining a conference..that took around 5 weeks and I dint play that time.

It really sucked to pick up the guitar again... All felt numb for 2 weeks. That means I needed 2 weekends to recover. ^^

It was maybe 8 months where i couldnt play properly due to injury.
Also after meeting up the first time with dancers i stopped practicing picado and other techniques for years, which was a bad idea. Coz now i have to start from almost zero again.

RE: What's the longest time... (in reply to CarloJuan

In the 1.5 years I'd started playing guitar, I had to stop 3 times because of back injuries.
First time 6 months, second time 2 months, and now already 5 weeks.

Those periods I'd tried to work only RH, LH damped the strings all the time. In that way it was possible to do exercises while lying/walking/standing.

RE: What's the longest time... (in reply to CarloJuan

Ive played some kind of guitar regularly for 20 years. Except for about 10 years ago
I didnt play for a year because I lived in a 1 bedroom apartment, and I didnt want to
bother my wife.

I later got rid of the wife.

The new one loves my guitar playing.

I heard an "obituary" about the late Tony Curtis who was quoted as saying something like....

"Well, I've been married six times now. It never seemed to work out right for me...
At one point I was even getting remarried every three years....as soon as the guarantee ran out...."



I love that acid sense of humour..

cheers,

Ron

I know a guy who likes to introduce his wife as his "first wife".
I think he just wants to get a reaction out of her :)

Jeez!....what is it with these multi-millionaires and marriages?

I didn't touch a flamenco guitar or practice for the first 40 years of my life.

But better late than never, I say.
