Rhythm Practice by Donovan Stokes

I was browsing and found this post that may help me improve my mind/muscle coordination.

Please check out Rhythm Practice: Using Rhythms to Improve a Passage, Phrase or Lick by Donovan Stokes.

"Instrumental technique is simply a matter of mental command and physical response. Effortless playing of a passage requires a clear mental image and a strong mind/muscle connection. Fluency of technique is merely a result of a clear mental image and instantaneous physical response."
