Ok, guys, I need to get a practice routine down now that I'm starting to get into more technical pieces.

Right now I'm doing:
A printout of open string exercises
Rhythm exercises from the note reading course
Current piece (Simple Gifts)
Next piece (Canon in D melody)

I have a scale book but I've only learned 1 octave Dmaj and Cmaj and 2 octave Gmaj. I've been doing the rhythm exercises where each measure is a note on the scale.

Are there any works I can find on IMSLP I should be doing?

Hi Courtney, here is a good video for that:

What is practicing with a drone and what is it for?

Sevcik op 2 and op 3 are on IMSLP. They are bowing exercises but neither of them are open string exercises. I think it would be very worthwhile getting the Auer book for the open string exercises. It is very much worth the investment, and honestly, I think at this point in your playing you would benefit more from Auer than from Sevcik op 2.

I'm very interested to know if there are any open string works on IMSLP
