Thread Name: How do you play through mistakes?
Subject: RE: How do you play through mistakes?
Angus Grant Jnr used to tell us that there was no such thing as playing a "bum note". It was the one which came afterwards which causes the problem

So, there is always the option to rescue yourself but you need to think fast. it may mean adding or missing the next note or changing it so as the music still flows. Do it well and listeners might even think you meant to do it that way.
