Gary encouraged you to keep practice at home and to stay in your comfort zone at a gig. You let the things you learned become part of your playing by osmosis. So when you are grinding out these exercises just be aware that it will take root in your playing.
Wise words. This is the definitive use of technique - the ability to pay less attention to what you’re doing and more attention to reacting to your musical environment and supporting the players around you.

Here’s some other great advice I took to heart from him, although it’s tough-
“ When you record yourself, listen to what you did good also.”
That's true, we are always looking the mistake, the things we played (or not played) wrong...
Sometimes it's healthy to see the things we did fine:blob3:. It's hard, it's easier to pay attention to the mistakes... :dontknow: :thumbleft:
