I'm wondering just how much this affects other people than me ...

* Do you find yourself not playing anything at all for days on end over the festive period?
* If so, how long does this playing drought last?
* How does it affect you?

Sounds great, David.

I suppose for me the big issue is the run up - I didn't play a note yesterday, and not much the day before. I shan't be able to play anything at all today - too busy with Christmas preparations - and then I'll be attending my family tomorrow and Boxing Day. So that's at least 4 days when I won't play a note.

I'm already having withdrawal symptoms. :(

"If I don't practice for one day, I can tell. If I don't practice for two days, the critics can tell. If I don't practice for three days, the public can tell."

-Jascha Heifetz

Spare atleast a few minutes a day for busy days.

My hands felt like shaking and is doing the spirit fingers when I don't play my flutes.

Your muscle will still have the memory... But slowly you will lose the elasticity as the number of days increases without practice.

On the otherhand,
"Practice makes perfect, but nobody is perfect... So why practice?"
-Procrastination
