Re: Difficult uke or bad technique?

2% success, 90% success.... I think the optimum varies from person to person and is different at different stages of learning or different kinds of practice. For me I usually seem to learn best somewhere in between those two extremes. Two much success and I'm missing too many opportunities to see problems and just building bad habits, but too little and when something does actually work I can't remember what I did differently that time let alone compare it do what I did the last time it worked and it's all just lost anyway, nothing sticks... For me there needs to be enough of both success and failure to be able to compare somehow what was better with what was worse. Though some days it's mostly failure (experimenting with some particular opening or tricky part or person) and other days it's mostly success (cementing something in your reflexes or muscles so you can do it without conscious thought).
