I am starting to believe so. my rhythm and syncopation has improved drastically since I started doing this. standing up is best for because I can rock and round and have total movement in my body. it relaxes me and puts me in a groove. when sitting I like to rock and back forth (sometimes to the extent that I almost tilt my chair all the way back). months ago I didn't practice like this. I focused on technique and getting it "perfect". For me personally this was a huge mistake. i have never been able to get the feel for the music down until i began to play in motion. this obviously isn't "the way" for everybody and there are many examples of very still musicians who are incredible, but i thought id share this very easy thing to do since it has helped me out in many ways. discuss.
