    I don't have any practice booklets left, I have no idea where my old high school practice books went, and have no material.

    Playing scales is getting annoying.
    Any pointers on how to re-pick up my old instrument, and any stuff for me to practice with?
    A Hymnbook is a great place to get 500 easy tunes to get restarted!

    I think for the person getting back in to the instrument, long tones, scales and slurs are "enough" routine. Tunes are the reason that we play and that should be a major part of rewarding yourself. So much of making music has LITTLE to do with the technical side.

    MUSIC feeds the soul. Make sure it is a big part of your comeback.
