I swear, I think I woke up yesterday and put my hands on the wrong arms or something. About the only notes I played correctly was strumming an open G. Getting ready to try again today and I can only hope that it won't be quite as bad.
I have those rare days where the hands and brain don't make the connection. I just put it back in the case and come back later.
That’s my usual response too. Put it back where it came from and try again the next day. Today was a much better practice day and I took a few minutes at the end to clean everything up a bit. They all (dobro, guitar and ukulele) look much better for the little effort.
Just think Phil, one day you may wake up with Jerry Douglas' arms!
What would be even funnier is that he wakes up with yours ...
I've had the same problem, but it's been persisting for some years now...as David Lindley put it (regarding appearing onstage with Jerry Douglas at Sore Fingers in the UK) "my hands became hooves."
