    sample an array form a distribution

    Hello,

    I have a somewhat basic question. Suppose I need to sample

    (\theta_1,\theta_2) \sim q(\theta_1,\theta_2).

    Is this achieved if I first sample

    \theta_1 \sim q(\theta_1)

    and then sample

    \theta_2 \sim q(\theta_2|\theta_2), or does that correspond to something else?

    That should be OK
