Maybe you should try playing Wise A** instead. Just kidding. Now really, I meant it (in my colyum) just get the John Doyle instructional video. I have 2 of them , the DVD is the one I learned most of it from. Plus listening to early Solas stuff a bunch (you get the feel of it that way).
A year and a half ago, Xmas, we were to go to Dayton for a visit with the in-laws and the Denver airport got all snowed up and (fortunately for us) we never even got out of Sacramento.
