therein lies an activation energy when playing the guitar.

i cannot just pick up the guitar

and play something perfectly

and fast

and with precision

the very first time i do it.

and this is separate from warming up.

i can be warmed up.

but it seems like it is harder to play something from silence than it is if i had a precursor of a few notes.

the idea of being able to play something straight away from silence.

to practice activation energy.

sometimes i need to play a few notes beforehand to build momentum/inertia of a phrase

which is fine but not ideal.

i want no crutches.

how do i practice having low to no activation energy requirement?

quite sure this applies to every instrument

and even everything.

every field.

inertia manifests everywhere

and seems to be a primordial trait of the mind.
