Re: How do you guys practice?

Repetition... drumless or not. Put the song on, put the headphone (earbuds etc...) on and just play along. It will come.

Re: Do you vacialte? I do a lot...

I was just bustin' on you. I mis-spell all the time and invariably someone will correct me. The real humor was that I had no idea that waivering was spelled wavering.
