Just thought I'd recommend these two books. Basic they may well be but for me they're not that easy. I'm currently working through volume one. Some of the phrasing/articulation is well hard! :w00t:

Started working with them years ago when I first started playing. Couldn't get to grips with many of them, but of all my books I still come back to them now as I find them really good phrasing exercises.

Yeh, know what you mean. Karen my teacher has me practicing the articulations until they are perfect. It's definitely helping with my reading and articulation and technique. Just done another 30 minutes on this. I am on to a new one which looks easy enough but seems impossible right now.

Having a break from playing for an hour or so before I give it a go again! :)
