Hey Luis, thanks for your input and for using WindWorks.

This is different for everyone and you said you are experiencing improvement so who can argue with that?! 🙂

My initial reaction was – observe but don’t try to control. We all play be feel but if you TRY to control the feeling, you may inadvertently begin to manipulate.

If you can relate a particular feeling to each note based on its sound and store that feeling, then the body will automatically recall that SHAPE when commanded.

The other thing to consider is how that feeling changes when you are fresh, tired, drunk… you know what I mean. As it says in Zen in the Art or Archery, you don’t want to be relying of “favorable conditions”, meaning playing well on a “good” day when it feel fine and you are fresh but suffering on a day when things are tough.

By all means explore it and keep us in the loop.

All the best,
