perfect! buy it!

I don't think you need a medium-high end set until your ears learn what's good and bad. Plus if you don't end up wanting to play your good cause you didn't pay a lot for it.

Re: Practice it until it "feels good."

That's it. It should not only sound good but feel good. In the pocket - letting muscle memory do its thing - letting you listen to what everyone else is doing
