Thumb is healing but hurts in a place I didn't cut it. ???

Thumb is healing.

Satie is being memorized. Weird chord progressions make for difficult memorization!

What do you do when you slice off the top of your thumb?

I almost made it an hour. It took quite a bit longer than normal when I have a finger injury for the pain to subside and me not feel like I was going into shock - probably about 20 minutes. Normally? Five minutes. I really wanted to play, though.

Trying to memorize Satie. The non-standard chord changes make it difficult.

Played for about an hour - sort-of repertoire stuff. Now sore back and arms.

And I am suspicious I have a cyst in my left thumb joint, which is probably why it hurts.

Post vacation - 2nd day

Fifteen minutes practice yesterday was not enough, achingly so.

Thirty minutes today was way too much.
