Hello, I'm feeling a bit guilty about becoming lax in my practice routine lately so I thought I would post here about it. I've been studying for about 9 mos. now out of books and am currently at the beginning of my fourth book. What I've recently discovered is that it is much easier now for me to jam along with my CD's then it was before. I have 16 yrs. experience as a drummer and a good ear. When I fire up the computer and start jamming the ideas are starting to come to me with so much more ease now! The problem is I'm having so much fun with it that I'm starting to neglect the book study which is what got me to this point in the first place, so I know it's best for me to keep up with it. But jamming is so much more fun! It's not like I don't play every day, I do. Just not as much on the theory recently. Any one got any pointers or routines you use to keep yourself disciplined? Thanks!
