High-level skills are made up of basic skills. Without mastery of the basics working on the high-level skill is futile. ... If you agree on these two points you will also agree there really isn't such a thing as a high-level skill, just the ability to combine the basics. The whole point is that real skill at anything comes from mastery of the simplest elements - the basics. If you really want to get better at something don't look for the so-called "high-level" things to study look for the most basic things to master! This will get you results!


While all skills are inherently complex, we nevertheless tend to grade them on a scale from simple to complex, or from automatic and highly repetitive, on one extreme, to mostly conscious and non-repetitive, on the other -- though what is "simple" or "complex" seems to depend more on the performer than on the nature of the skill itself.
