I finally understood what my harp teacher had been telling me 20 years ago about placing with the 4th finger first, or aiming for the bottom note to help get the chord you actually want. Twenty. Years.
Fuga hasn't completely gone away. Tambourin made my hand twinge. Pavane fell to shit as soon as I turned on the recorder. So yay and boo.
Meeting with GA went well? I hope I gave her enough info to get started.

My hand started bothering me both in Pavane and Folk Song. So I switched to Arabesque #1, but got fatigued. I did get in a good solid hour of playing, and Pavane is halfway done, and Folk Song is close to halfway, so it's not going too badly.

Fatigued from actually practicing (yesterday) for the first time in a month. It was actually my left arm. So instead of overdoing it, I practiced maybe 20 minutes. The Chinese Folk Song went really well. Pavane is going to need much repetition of the big chords. Much.
