Smashed my knuckles while tuning. Bandaid was distracting. You'd think after *mumble* years I would have figured out how to tune safely.

Two up one down does work, so keep using it! Except I'm overcoming a LOT of muscle memory in Rumba. Work on smooth transitions between phrases.

Today is a day I wish I could have played 3 hours or more. :(

Up one down two seems to work well except when my brains fall out of my ears.

Exercised (didn't overdo it, yay), started Rumba, continued Gavotte, played Zarabanda.

Counting helps breathing.

Exercises made for shaky arms, but fingers warmed up. Too shaky to get any noticeable work done. Still working on chord + octave jump in Gavotte.

Gavotte felt much more comfortable in my hands, but only had 30 min to play, so not sure if I can play it up to speed.
