I made notes on The Drive, which I can't remember now, but are safely written on the actual music. Something about dynamics and making sure both hands are playing at the same time. So nothing new.

I made up charts for the next two pieces so I have something to alternate with Folk Song 2 and LGR. I'm going to be starting on Folk Song 1 and Zarabanda (again).

LGR third page is better now.  Should be able to start working on it again. Maybe not tomorrow, but Sunday.

LGR - I did go back to square one, and the first page seems to be pretty solid. The second page seems to be relatively solid. But the last page is still troublesome - like I've never learned it/seen it/played it before.

Folk Song 2 is so much fun to play. It's like the abandon I had when I used to bang on the piano before I knew how to play, but is absolutely gorgeous. It's almost all up to ♩=80. It was apparently originally for flute and harp and there are three. Also, I'm not sure if I want to play it at the recommended speed, both because I don't think I can physically do some of the things in the piece and I've listened to it sped up, and I can't hear all the beautiful notes - they need to have some space.
