@jstamey84, There are enough “seasoned” players in here that will give you the correct advice. I agree with @Treblemaker, @lonewolf223, @Mark_Rocka, and @Archie that the Tef files and the MP3 files will help you out a ton. Also, the nice thing about the Tef reader is that you can “Highlight” whatever you need to work on. IMHO i would suggest just doing a couple of measures or measure at a time until you have them down pat, Also if you can try either a set of earphones or headphones and plug them into your computer (or laptop) that way you can hear the notes a little bit clearer without any outside distractions. I use headphones myself just because i have wooden floors and my banjo is extremely loud it makes it easier for me to hear the timing and the melody… Try it to see if it works better for you.
