Trying to pick a classical piece. I think I'll go with the one that doesn't hurt to play.

Worked on homework (!)(music homework is awesome homework to have, btw) singing solfège to three simple tunes, then transposing them to a different key. Movable d'oh!

Playing Notturno, working on problem spots and trying to get nice phrasing with melody in thumbs, is apparently bad for my bad tendons. I will lay off that and work on other things.

Then played through more pieces in Solos, ending with a really relaxing run through of Zarabanda.

Life is good. :)

Tried to do detail work on Zarabanda, but just ended up playing through most of Solos for the Harp Player.

Finally found a version of Zarabanda.

My hands never really warmed up today. I guess it really is fall. *sigh* I took several passes on all fingers of Lariviere.

Then worked on chords and cleaning up Zarabanda.

Tried to play Notturno at speed. Bit of a mind-twister as the marking is quarter instead of eighths. I could just multiply it by two, though, duh.
