Over on the the band website I write:
We practice every week, and in order to double the efficiency, the value of that practice we record it quite often. Most weeks really. Then go back and watch it again, comment on it, crack jokes, drink booze.
Jack tells us that this is the right thing to do, apparently the neural growth which practice facilitates works just as well when you watch yourself in a recording as it does when you actually do it. Or something. Jack’s not always clear on exactly what he’s programming our brains to do.
Here’s some video of us at the last practice anyway. We watched this one lots of times.
I think it really helps to review these things. If you wanna learn how to do something from playing in a band through learning to draw or transcending human nature, watching yourself try helps more than watching Saturday night TV.
