I received my tortoise shell pickguard and installed it on my Fender bass. It looks so much better than the white pickguard. After laying off practicing for a day, playing did indeed seem easier when I resumed the following day.
Today I was playing "Misty" along with the notes when an idea dawned on me. Before playing the notes to the recording, I just follow the notes with my finger while the recording plays. This gives me a much better sense of the timing and sound. Afterwards, it is easier to play the notes correctly with the recording. Brilliant.
