This couldn't have shown up on the forum at a better time as am going through a plateau myself. Another good thing that came out of listening to this is I subscribed to "Cleaning Up the Mental Mess" podcast - it's great !

I am not so hard on myself anymore and accept there are days when the fingers are just not working so well and i revert to playing an easy one. At the moment that is Wild Mountain Thyme!

I feel you. Sometimes I just think. What is up with my hands today. A good sleep and some fortitude with practice always helps.
