    Thanks, Stephen.

    Just for others’ info, I tried the Google Drive route and my video file hung during processing.  Apparently other Google Drive users complain of this as well, so, I went with the private YouTube route.

    Thanks again,

    Duane

    That’s a good point, they do take a few minutes to set up each time you play, and the background has to be darker.  For me, the biggest obstacle is the bright light on the camera, but I use sunglasses and the brim of a baseball cap to partially shade my eyes, and that seems to work fine.

    Hey Marcus – I agree wholeheartedly that there’s no substitute for the real thing!  But, I’ve found these to be a good supplement (complemented by the pad) which extend my practice time in environments where it’s impossible to bring the kit.  Thanks!

    Thanks, Marcus – yeah, I’m diving in on the Groove series to start, while continuing to work on the Jazz Vocabulary track (which I had purchased separately a few weeks ago).  Thanks for your help!

    Hey Marcus – thanks for your reply!  I need to improve my groove confidence, fluidity, and beat placement.  Sometimes when I listen to myself (I record most of our weekly rehearsals), I say to myself – “what was that”?  It sounds ragged.  Also, my soloing is pretty repetitive; I find myself stuck in similar themes and my execution is not that smooth.  So those are my core goals for now.
