Remember: there's a drastic difference between knowing something intellectually, and the physical embodiment of that thing.
Just because you KNOW it, doesn't mean you "got it".
For example: You may know 20 different chord voicings, but can you apply them in different and interesting combinations (progressions)?
Can you then play them at a multitude of tempos (WITH a metronome) for 4 or 5 minutes without fail? Can you play them with different rhythmic variations? Arpeggiate them? Play loudly? Softly? Finger-pick them? etc...
There are so many ways to improve your musicianship; and most of the time the answer lies in musical variation of "simple" information.
• Choose one idea
• Explore it deeply
The hunt for new information can be a distraction from what is truly needed to grow your musicianship.
