    Yep its hard to get use to off beats.
    Here's what I recommend:
    1)See if you can find (on the net) anything on "forward motion"
    It will discuss how beat "one" is the strongest beat and the beat we actually should head towards.
    2)Do your scales like this:
    eighth note rest-tongue, tongue, slur, tongue, slur, tongue, slur, tongue
    Hope this helps

    Thanks again. Nothing new here. . . just common sense. I knew all of this, of course, but get frustrated myself. Thanks for the reassurance, that's probably all I really needed.
