RE: Chega de Saudade (in reply to rombsix

Nice!

That poster: "Keep calm and practice scales"

That's the theory at least.
In my case it's more like:

"Get frustrated because you keep on practicing picado scales and you're stuck at the same fr$cking XX bpm mark. I mean seriously. I've got all of Percusion flamenca down just right but I can't play it as a piece because of that goddamn picado run in the middle. GRRRRR F%ck this sh$t I'm gonna learn to play the ocarina instead and make a career playing Zelda covers at nerd conventions. Goes to the local bar and drinks the night away b$tching about flamenco scales. Wakes up the next morning refreshed and ready to give it another go. OK, inhale, exhale, keep calm and practice scales. "Twang". Nail breaks. Repeat cycle.
