Android music apps are pretty thin on the ground compared to iOS, mostly because of the latency problems (although that may be fixed in the next major release). I have not seen specifically what you're looking for on Android, but if it exists, you mi

I think I'll follow Tureck's book to the letter, and see where it takes me. I can always unlearn and re-learn if I feel the need. I get the feeling that she knows her stuff, and anything I learn will not be detrimental to my progress.
