This is what happens to me...I get into what I'm playing (as if I were in the audience) and my mind wanders and I make mistakes and have a hard time finding the "thread" again. Keeping focused on what I'm doing and breathing and relaxing is what I need to do I think...thanks for this post. If I make a mistake with a chord or if I'm playing with others strumming and singing this is no problem. I can play right through it. It is different when I'm playing solo finger style.
