Started to get comfortable playing LGR at 100 again.

I think Berceuse is ready for recording.

First page of Folk song 2 learned. Realized I tend to be sloppy during the slow part of learning assuming I'll fix it later so I'm trying to take care learning it, lnowing what that will save me later. Basically, trying to pay attention to detail NOW.

Wrote a little bit of music. Not sure where it's going and don't know if I want to plan it or let it happen.

Analyzed Chameleons and learned I lost a lot of what I learned in music theory. And can't tell what key Monkeyland is in. Is it F# major or D# minor?

Need to go back to step 3 for LGR.

Set up sessions for Chinese Folk song 2.

Listened to Berceuse and cleaned up the left hand (sloppy!) and switched to less squeaky shoes and now need to polish up pedal changes - again.  Then go through and play all 5x without mistakes. 

Getting more comfortable playing it.  I guess I really do better when I take breaks between practice sessions.  Which means I could probably be learning 2 or 3 things at a time.
