Ain't that the truth. I was talking to Sean Ardoin about learning to play and he said that the way he and his brother Chris did it was to sit in a room and play over and over and over and over etc. etc. It's like football. Everyone wants to go out in the fall and be a football star but very few are willing to go to football practice in August so they can make the team. I think the best way to improve is get hold of a drum machine, program in a basic Zydeco, Waltz and Two Step, crank it up and just work on it. The drum machine won't ever stop no matter how many mistakes you make. Before you know it, you will make less mistakes and be able to keep it going.
