Onya, keystring! That has helped. "Blessed are the clarifiers..."

Well, with the dog and ball stuff out of the way, there are still a few issues:

[1] "teachers, teach me" did still come across like a demand.
[2] We still don't know whether you had payment in mind. Most of us earn our living - such as it is - by teaching, and though we might give advice from time to time, or post videos like keyboardklutz, I don't think anyone would be prepared to set up a regular "lesson" type situation for free.
[3] the big issue raised by Nikolas, of demonstration. To keep sending videos backwards and forwards is a bit cumbersome, don't you think? How much easier to just go and find yourself a teacher!
But most here are generous with their tips and advice on a particular point from time to time.
