Sorry to have been so scarce, recently. I have finally finsihed off my second masters degree, and now feel like I'll be able to contribute more. I have posted some discussion about my current practice routine on my web log, FWIIW. You're welcome to check it out. http://NickDrozdoff.blogspot.com Also, I have some practice stuff recorded at my Ampcast site. You might give some of them a listen if you read the blog stuff. They are in the middle of the 115 or so sound files. http://www.ampcast.com/NickDrozdoff I hope there is a little something for anyone looking for some practice ideas. Peace.
