It occurs to me that it would be a good thing (tm) if those of us who are completely bumfuzzled could find mentors. In an absolutely ideal world, one would bring one's setup to a mentor and have him/her help you get it at least going to the point of being able to record and play back. I am finding that the CakeTalking tutorial will be fabulously useful once I have achieved this very basic thing, but until then, 98% of it isn't doing me much good.
I am lucky. I have someone relatively local who has volunteered to help me. I wonder if there's a way to facilitate this sort of exchange, with the idea that when we neophytes are grizzled veterans, we will bring along some other dewy-eyed novice as we were brought along.
In saying this, I in no way wish to lessen the importance either of the major efforts put forth by Dancing Dots in writing the tutorials, or of this list and those on it who take time to answer questions. There are some things better taught hands on, and for me, this appears to be one of them. Maye it is so for others as well.
As a related question, does anyone know of classes or the like that exist to teach this stuff?
