  1. When will you put Fury, and The Siege of Arundel on your website? I was going to practice, but I don’t know what it sounds like, and I like listening to the song a few times, and going over my music with it a few times before I practice alone. Thanks 🙂

  2. Maybe you could put a copy on here, just in case someone forgets their music (me) so they could use this. Just an idea. Thanks:)
