Well, like the title says it's been awhile. Getting away from the forums and taking lessons from my local college professor was the best thing I did. So I read some of my old posts and got a good laugh since I know that some of them were wrong/dumb. Anyways just by getting away and practicing more and listening to my professor is the best thing I've done for my playing. So hello again everyone and I am happy to say I will be starting college this fall as a music edu major and/or a performance major with a teaching certificate.
