    As a comeback player who is only a bit over 4 months into the process, I take great encouragement from the fact that you have made it 3 years. That give me hope that my lips won't fall off before I can finally make it through Arbans Characteristic Study #1 (that is my goal - then Carnival of Venice).

    Thanks again for the update.

    It's been really neat, this comeback thing. Like a series of plateaus, each one brings a new level of ability. There have been times I just wanted to say screw it, I'll never be able to play again or like used to play, but tonight....in the Arban's book.....I am invincible!!! I have to say, I spend alot of time lurking at TM, but all y'all have kept me alive on the trail, to that I say THANKS!!!!! Now, back to Carnival of Venice.....this time playing it backwards!ROFL Thanx guys....I am pumped.......newchopschuck
