The last few months I've been making a real conscience effor to think of and play the notes along in my head while I play. I also play piano and will try to transpose things I learn on guitar over to piano. Music mental strenghtening as I like to call it. I also try to count every note as well just to keep the rhythm up. Does anyone else do this or am I slightly overthinking things because I do that and am not sure if this is heljping (it is not) or if it will ultimately hinder me as I get better and better at the craft.
