Here's a neat trick. we'll first a question... if you are a musician.....what is the quickest easiest way to settle into a groove and force yourself to connect and listen to the people your playing with? It's not by listening harder... you gotta breathe. That's right. breathing in time with the groove that your playing will force you and your body into that groove. Try it some time. Either breathe through the rhythm of the length of measure.. in...1,2,3,4...out.. 1,2,3,4, or if you can breathe in syncopated rhythm to the drummer or your instrument. It will instantly change the way you play. Westerners are notorious for our bad breathing habits so don't be surprised if this freaks your body out. But it works! Oh yea.. and on fast songs be careful not to hyperventilate.
