Cool How to overcome major first pattern mind blanks

Hi guys, I need help with how to overcome a mindblank or 5 on song "The Adventures Of Lolo" I have played over 1000 times and I cannot do the first pattern without my hands going full retard, I can AAA it with shuffle turned on, but mirror doesn't seem to help. Will shuffle ever be allowed to be used towards scores? This song is my worst rank and I feel I will never be able to get rid of it. Any help would be good thanks.

mirror that shit boi

edit: real talk, the difficulty of the file is one hand trills. realistically, you can just manipulate them and hit the parts that are like [24][3][24][3][24]... etc, as jacks, but if you practice your one hand trill speed, you would do alot better.

if you have a hand bias with trills (e.g. your left hand can trill faster), then mirror the file.

The file is only around 192-200 bpm one hand trills, and they are fairly short, so practice files that have alot of patterns like that and you will improve.

Its only a mindblock if you are manipulating the patterns and not hitting them legit.

Best way to get over mindblocks is to stop playing the files and/or take a break from the game. A week or two usually does the trick for me. Also, if I remember correctly, LoLo seems to heavily rely on speedy one-hand trill transitions. Try and find some files that really stretch your one-hand trill speed to play in the meantime.

I took 10 years off and it didn't help for this particular one (maybe the first couple of times but I wasn't back to my old level by then) lol should have just turned the sound down and got someone to randomly pick the song to trick my brain thinking it wasn't LOLO. Maybe if I play it 1000 times with shuffle on, then the normal pattern might seem different? Seems like a lot of effort for one 30 second song. It's actually quite fun to play on shuffle

True, but, now that you've shaken off your 10 year rust, a short-term break might yield surprising results

switch scroll directions.

makes the whole file mindblocked and will sometimes flush the pattern and clear your brains cache

To be sympathetic though the intro of Lolo is probably the most mindblocked pattern in the entire game, Lolo is ridiculous

edit: also dinglesberry, the mindblock isn't because of 1h trill speed, it's an actual mindblock on the pattern before the trill. statements about how the other people giving advice are "garbage" is pretty rich coming from someone who's barely SDG'd the file in question lmao
