thanks guys, lots of helpful stuff. I guess I just need to make a laundry list of everything I want to get better at and get with some material and a teacher. Gave my old teacher a call during lunch. Here is a link to my first CD, out about 6 months and pretty recent. I take a solo on don't know which is almost Beatrice Changes. I can't say that I was thinking too hard about the harmoy. http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/chenuquartet tell me what you think of these songs too, most are originals, some are contrafacts? I don't feel like I learn a lot of stuff from some of these tunes. Thanks.
