    I have to Thank You and hope someday in a monetary way. If I can get past my nerves when playing in front of others, the free printouts recieved 7yr ago have not gone unused there the main part of my daily practice. I guess I aim for perfection when it come to playing for others. Thank You!!! , Master Hodges
