Practice…. to me, used to be a "duty" instead of a fun thing. Being a music student, I had to be a perfectionist who supposed to practice 5+ hours per day, supposed to think/talk about music all time, listen to them as much and many types/genres as possible, and so on. Honestly, I was not sure whether or not I "like" music for a long time.
I now like to practice drums, keys and singing… well, I actually love practicing what I do in general. I used to think the practice time = torture which I had to accept in order to be "better". It is true in many cases, but I would rather use/spend the time as an exciting moment to find something new instead of a torture.
Of course, if you are stuck with some difficult phrase, tone or rhythm, you can easily think "Oh my god! this is not fuuuuunnnn!! damn!!" But, at the same time, isn't it interesting how your body starts reacting with the ideal vision (sound) you are seeing/hearing in your head, and it slowly becomes realistic…. in many cases, what you actually see/hear is way better than you envisioned before.
I really enjoy my & band's practice time. Great time to find something new every time…. every time is different time and the same song you think is not the same.
