Woohoo! I'm calling Italian Pavane learned for all intents and purposes.  There are some measures that I just cannot figure out how I'm going to play, and I skipped those on the checklist and will come back to them later, but that's how I've been learning all my other pieces, and they seem to be turning out ok.  So... modified goal achieved! It's going to take a few more months to get everything recordable, possibly 6 months?  I need to go back through my previous charts and see if I can estimate that.

Trouble concentrating. A couple measures of Italian Pavane learned. There's weird muffling going on in this piece. Was hoping to have it learned by the end of the month but seeing as how that's 2 days away, probably not going to happen.

Steam burned my finger today. Got a few measures of Italian Pavane learned before giving up in painful frustration.

Working line by line on Fuga now. Re-vamped the typical practice plan to see if measure/line/page progression goes better.

Not sure what to do about Tambourin.

I realized today that after Fuga, I just have one more piece to learn! Everything else is just polishing. Whoa. ! So I sort of am on schedule, as far as my original goal wanting to get everything done and an album released by September. Everything is almost done.

And I also realized Fuga is simply a round. The right hand leads.

Learned more of Flagello Sonata parts I and II.

Recorded Tambourin to see where I'm at, and my mind went blank as soon as the recorder went on. Is it getting worse?  I couldn't even get through the first line and I have this memorized!

From what I could hear, the trill are sounding better than last checkpoint. It doesn't have that carefree dance-y quality though. Yet. Yet? Possibly because my mind went blank and it lost continuity.

Finished note learning on Fuga.  Took me 1.5 months.  And I took a bit of a break from it because I actually forgot about it.

Worked out the embellishments I want in Giga. Now to learn them.
