Practice: Hands apart works really well - when I learn pg 2 line 2 that way I can keep them separate and discrete in my brain as opposed to "AAAAAHHH! EVERYTHING'S HAPPENING AT ONCE!"

Transcribe: I can't hear worth S**T.

My website is down and will be until one of the two companies I'm switching between figures out what's going on.  Which means probably forever.

Practicing: 2nd line on 2nd page needs to be learned and practiced hands apart, otherwise it sounds like a complete mess, in addition to being "modern".

Transcribing: Decided to block out entire song, ie A - verse, B - chorus , C - interlude.  Everything is 4 measures, except one verse is 6, there's one inexplicable key change. Having it blocked out may help to write down what I'm hearing as I'm listening to it.

Out with a cold/allergies/whatever. Played a little to keep limber.

Practicing: Played 1 hr? Got 1st page Prelude 3 up to speed, and beyond, sort of.  I need to remember it's not as fast as I originally thought. ETA Oh, right. Forgot I recorded to see how I'm doing -
Right hand is louder, even at pp. Try to make it less plinky. Let left hand come out for once!
Transitions in 3rd line (again) and chords in 2nd to last line.

Transcribing: I realized I've been fantasizing about getting really good at transcribing and adding it as a separate component to practicing. So now I'm trying to start the habit of doing that. Will go do that after break.
