The way I practice sucks a little fun out of it. Ocd and methodical can make you good but be frustrating at the same time. I have to approach every part of flying from the physics side first, and this can make it take longer to learn a trick. I have to be able to see the forces at work, in my head first. Ground up understanding takes longer but you're more likely to become an expert. I dabble in guitar too and trust me when I say practice can be excruciating and absolutely no fun.
