    If I’m looking for motivation, I listen to music. I might work on some tiny goal, like learning a little lick. If I need a complete break from playing, I clean up my music library.

    Good advice too for people who don't play the fiddle ;^) You think mandolin is hard?

    I frequently have a tune nagging at me. Then I feel compelled to give it a go, playing slower, faster, looping particular sections, creating my own variations on the melody, etc. If there’s nothing rattling around my head, I might skip a day. And there’s always a backlog of old lessons to pull up for review.

    Ride my bike, walk, hike ! Give the mandolin a break for several days !
    My two favorite pastimes are drinking wine and playing the mandolin but most of my friends would rather hear me drink wine! Adapted from quote by Mark Twain------supposedly !
