This thread reminds me of a story I tell about my daughter, when she was maybe 8 years old and had already been playing the violin for 3 years. One evening, after her practice, I told her how well she was progressing and how I enjoyed her playing. She innocently responded, "Dad, if you practiced your fly casting every day, you'd probably be pretty good at it, too."
There's a lot of great advice in this thread. It has already been noted by others above, how important muscle memory is, and practice develops that memory....we can all use it, especially as we get older.
