:lol: :bravo: Oh, I really needed that. I noticed I am starting to play fast where before it was an unrealistic dream. I wanted to hear the fast riffs, as composed and heard in my head, fast. It's happening but right-arm is slapping me down with CTunnel, :chaud: Took a break, came here for page-turning advice, as I think that awkward break to turn page does something, need to re-position each part of body back . . . anyway, thanks for the laugh!

Student to J.B.: "How fast can you play (scales)?"
J.B. : "Fast enough."
