    Hi Mel, thanks for posting these videos. I’m busy working on Europa. Getting the balance right between those long held notes and the quicker parts is quite a challenge!

    you’re gettin onto it Jeff…there was a recent post regarding the importance and benefits of us playing with a track or at least a metronome.
    you should practice with one to get your rythme more “steady-as-she-goes”!

    Hi Guys, thanks for the positive comments.

    Thanks Johnny, I’m certainly feeling more comfortable with the instrument. Your advice on long tones and practice was perfect for improving tone.
    Now that my tone is getting there, timing will be my main area of focus. I’ll be working my metronome overtime. Cheers

    It’s a good song to work on. Johnny is right on! I am just starting to incorporate the metronome in all I do. You can tell on scales right away when you use one. Instead of just blasting thru them there is a more definite structure. 🙂
