Playing when I'm exhausted will put me to sleep. I suppose it's the soothing effect of the music.

If I'm that spent, I usually will just play mandolin. Especially if I've been cutting trees or doing other farm work. Or after a particularly long and busy shift at work. I've tried to play fiddle at those times but usually get frustrated or just can't get inspired because I need something a little more restful. As in loll on the couch and noodle restful.  If I'm so spent that even the mandolin is tough, then I read! At least for me, if it gets to the point of struggling to play in a satisfying way when tired, it seems like it almost can set me back a bit.

When I pick up an instrument, any and I cannot seem to get things to gel, I know it is me and not the instrument. Everything is harder than it has to be, the things you could do yesterday are unattainable and nothing seems in tune or in sync, it's me. At these times I rest and perhaps listen and maybe even fall asleep listening. But playing, that ain't going to happen until I get my mojo back.

I went to some festivals this summer and it just felt Amazing, the music just glided off my fingers on its own! Now I'm home alone and there's no jams within 50 miles (can't drive to them anyway) and I'm just too bored & uninspired to practice. My shoulders hurt from arthritis & I'm sleepy after a long day & my skill level is rusting away. Except now & then I get inspired, maybe from a youtube video. I'll play some easy stuff like one of those 100 mph Irish tunes, & get so inspired it practically plays itself! it happened the other day, I felt so energized I felt like I'd got 20 yrs younger! I said "why don't I do this all the time?" The answer is very difficult to get into that state.
