Something interesting happened to me two weeks ago, I was playing with a guitarist at a local small Jazz bar in Berlin. It was a positive day, I worked hard on my bass to be ready. I came with full of energy and happy like in my bar mitzva but it ended being the worst night of me playing. Last Tuesday, I called the same guy again, to make what we call in Hebrew TIKUN to correct the damage, this time it ends up as a beautiful full of interesting moments night. What was the difference? Effortless. but how??? I learned a beautiful little tip from Kith Jarrett bass player Gary Peacock who died last month, he told me: to make a sound, a movement, you need only a certain amount of pressure, once the sound is in the air try mentally to remember this soft amount of effort by a few repetitions. Or, I imagine eating ice cream, then I get the point much faster.
