That’s a great way to learn. Never thought of doing that! I’ll do it! I know just the song to work on. Thanks again ! I appreciate that advice.Don't worry about your current speed, what you have to try is to play accurately (even if you have to slow the song down to say..70%) and once that becomes the norm (you playing the song accurately at 70 percent, then start to increase speed maybe in increments of 5% if you need to but keep that speed until you are able to finish the song accurately, then so on and so forth. I am not against using exercises, they are just so boring to me sometimes.
I agree with you on the exercise books they can get very boring !
