    THE EXCITING, AMAZING FACT FOR TODAY IS: BARABOO, WISCONSIN WAS VOTED 54TH "BEST SMALL TOWN" OUT OF 100 IN 1995. THEN IT WAS VOTED "BEST SMALL TOWN" IN 1996! INCREDIBLE!

    Hello. Lately I haven't been practicing very much because I am afraid that I will just get in to a rut and develop bad habits. This happened with guitar, and it took a long time to overcome. So, I was wondering if anybody had some good practice routines.

    I play blues, classic rock, and funk, if that helps at all.

    Thanks.
