I'm am happy to say things are much calmer now and I have played everyday for the past 9 weeks. I have already been through Fundamentals 1 and 2 and feel like Chris Schlegel is one of the family. I keep expecting him to walk through the door and ask me how practice is going. Anyways, I'm almost through rock lesson one and I am really enjoying it. I work about an hour on basics, pentatonics, strumming etc. and then sit back and make up riffs and stuff for another hour. The time goes so quickly its crazy.
It's good to be back and thank you for all the hard work you have put into everything to make this such a great place to learn.
