HDuaneaz where did you find the quarter drill from Michael? I don’t recall seeing it in the lessons. Could someone post a link to it? I also have had issues with relaxing. As a kid I freaked out when my teacher told me to relax my left hand. I was trying so hard and relaxing seemed like an oxymoron. The exercises and specific ideas instead of just a general instruction to relax are necessary for me. I also am seeing some progress with this.
