Rags are something i've been having mixed luck with as I try to master them. Ideally I would like to turn my "luck" into a useable skill.
Problems i'm having...As i'm sure you already know since some of you are probably veterans. So bare with me, please.
1. When i try to manually rag, the rythmn is a real mess. I've tried tracking +-20. Is there a visual limit to how far you can track before it becomes really noticeable? Perhaps there's a rule, perhaps it's by individual font.
2. Are there any other "tricks" that you can share?
3. Some will say there's a rule, i'm sure, but can you use a hyphen when ragging?
4. Does anyone have suggestions for things to look for when ragging. I need to gain some ground here in order to be pleased.
Anxiously awaiting your thoughts!
