Prelude 1: played around with speed. Even though it's memorized, I still hesitate at the beginning of measures. Is there a way to ... ? lost my train of thought. Thanks, tinnitus.

Prelude 2: worked again on ending. Crossing over to play higher with left hand is throwing me.

Prelude 3: got a few more measures up to =200. How am I going to speed it up in 5/8?

Donkeys: Worked the next line and finally had to give up because my tinnitus + rain made it impossible to concentrate. My playing sounded like a badly tuned radio.

Prelude 1: I have it memorized. Booyah.

Prelude 2: It is done for all intents and purposes.

Prelude 3: Another piece I'm going to have to learn measure by measure, I think. Did a little bit of that today.

Grey Donkeys: I would really like to be able to play this. A lot is memorized, but memorized sloppily. Worked on a line/section, working up to =168. Did a good job learning it quickly and figuring out the musicality. Execution is another story.

Build up stamina. Ignore brain tricks telling you to stop.

My fingernail is slowly growing back, but it hurts to play.

Any my tinnitus is back.
