I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I practice and practice a piece and just don't seem to be getting it. I play it like I have 5 thumbs. I lay the guitar down and pick it up maybe an hour or even a day later and all of a sudden it is like God took over my hands. I play the piece about as good as I could ever expect too.

I have had that sort of delayed reaction too. I am not sure what it is, I think they call it "muscle memory." Fun, though!

I think it s just normal. That happens to me all the time, when I m working hard to get to a "next level", even sticking on it for days. Then I just take a break from it for a few days and when I come back, it seems that my brain did adsorb it. I m not saing I m able to do that thing 100% perfect, but the "jump" was done

yes. this happens me too..In fact I use it (the break) as a tool to learning. it definately helps to take a break and come back... infact I'll be checking that philosophy out tonight :)
I see this also with training my horse. they have to "lick and chew" on it a while. you take a break on a new learning topic and come back the next day and they are so good at it.

One think I have noticed is that one day I cant play anything. I hit notes I don't mean to, I can't transition between chords smoothly, but the next day it all just flows. Its really weird.
