Detail work on lt and rt hand (Flight) bottom pg 2. Need to practice matching them up.

More read through of Tiersen to boost confidence. Easier to play completely opposite things in opposite hands. :)

Checked out Yann Tiersen's v.2 to read through (again) and take a break from detail work I feel is getting me nowhere. The last time I checked it out, I could barely play any of the pieces and stopped after the first few measures. Tonight I could play them with barely any problem. Nice to know I'm still improving and that that's possible.

Probably have to keep up detail work on (Flight) until even playing is habit. Maybe 2 wks? 30 days? How long does it take to form good habits vs. bad? Also, my harp does not have enough room for my hand in higher registers, which is causing my hand to bounce of soundboard and miss notes. >:|

Donkeys is ok until I start working on it. I just do NOT want to play the higher chords in the rt hand, what is going on?

Sat back the past couple days and listened to someone else play the harp for a change. Joanna Newsom was spectacular and I feel lucky I was able to go both nights.

Also chewed my cuticles (bad!) and played much less tonight due to swollen and painful finger.

AAAAND helped a friend who locked herself out back into her place by taking her front door off its hinges, which cut into my practice time. A girl's gotta help her friends, though, ya know? Priorities!
