Subject: RE: How do you play through mistakes?
Keep trying the piece at different speeds, too slow as well as too fast. It may be a particular pace that causes the problem. Once you find out a speed that you can play it at gradually move to the correct speed, slowing down or speeding up as appropriate.
If you have a metro(g)nome use that as a regulator to change the pace, altering it bit by bit.
If it is only happening on the one instrument then adjust your way of holding it slightly and see if the muscle memory is fooled.
That's all I can think to suggest at the moment.
