Update all:

Manny been putting in time with the metronone and just trying to establish the rythems in my parts. Not an easy task but thanks for the tip.

I made a recording of the band and found it to be moderatly helpful in keeping me on track so thanks all for those tips.

As for section practice, no not happening. I'm the only player motivated to commit to that everyone else was dis-interested so I guess that I'll just keep on playing. I kind of expected that I would not be able to get anything going in this regard.

thanks again all,

Best wishes,
