Prelude 1: Halfway done, will need to work on details throughout once I'm finished.

Stopped playing early - only(!) after 1.5 hours - because of gliss practice.

I need to learn not to make phone calls right after practicing. My brain doesn't work in a sequential manner. Can't. Sentence. Properly.

Passacaille might actually be close to being finished. I need to work on the endings for Var. IV, X, and XIII. And that might be it!

Prelude 1 is still coming slowly, but it is working. I vary between complete crap and flawless (I think) between one play and the next. How do I get the average to move more towards flawless?

Played through Notturno and Zarabanda. And a Bochsa.

And it all really only took 1.5 hours? I'm not sure I believe that.

Prelude 1: need to concentrate - if my attention wanders AT ALL, I miss notes. Need to concentrate on no fingernail or pedal sounds.

Prelude 1: started trying to speed it up. Remember to raise. 1.5 lines at a time to catch overlap. ♩=104.
