Worked ½ hour on scales. (flight)

Worked more on Notturno/Finale. Whoa. Finale has a slick cross staff plug-in. I guess I don't really know what plug-ins are. A different form of macros?

Transcribing Notturno into Finale. What a program. Tried "locking" the measures to two per line, but nooOOOooo, apparently that means the measures can still move around to whatever configuration they want. And who edited the tutorials, if anyone? Hello? It's disturbing I'm able to find the mistakes in the manual and I haven't even learned the program.
Tried to play on Tuesday, did for about 30 seconds. Not at all on Wednesday. Between the pain in my jaw, ear, and hands, it was a lost cause.

If I could just send a pair of floaty hands and a set of ears to my harp...

Practiced as much as I could with blister so I could: 1) keep my fingers limber and 2) not make the blister any worse.

The blister I thought I might have is indeed a blister, so no more practicing today. Ow.
Sort of got the tricky dynamics learned? Probably will have to go through a couple more times.

Later today work on Clementi.

And I may have a blister.
