Great tips @fiddlinsteudel. Thanks for posting it.

Nice set of tips.  I particularly liked the pair for practising slow and fast.  Slow is good for precision, fast is good for fluidity/fluency, when you drop back to the actual tempo you'd perform at.

Looks like a good site for that genre.

Nice article. But #10...find inspiration is the best! Just a week into fiddling, I started to slog thru the mandatory "Twinkle" and realized the tune did nothing for me. So I quickly gave my motivation a big boost by finding a few tunes that I can better relate to. Right now it's "El Condor Pasa" (I'd rather be a hammer than a nail). Great finger workout, fairly simple and yet a pleasing, familiar tune. Hey! I'm my own teacher, right?
