My entire rt hand is kind of achy now, instead of just the thumb joint. And it's traveling up into my arm, so I'm going to go slap the old heating pad on it and read.

I managed to get the 2nd piece corrected (I think) in Two Pieces for Harp.

I played Folk Song II in it's entirety, with no mistakes at half speed. This is a doozy. And I seem to be in such a funk that I wasn't even having my usual fun playing it. But it was nice to achieve the half speed.

Recorded Folk Song II to give a listen. Not bad, but need to practice with quarter notes so I can get proper beats.

Marked up and recorded 1st song in Two Pieces for Harp by Flagello. So far, it's not intriguing me too much. And there are a ton of errors in pedal markings and rhythms.

I got some good work done on Folk Song II - I just needed to focus, something which I can't always do. Trouble spots worked on and almost worked out so I can sort of play it at half speed.

Folk Song I is ready for recording at half speed. I kind of think I already know where the trouble spots are, though.

I stopped playing because my rt thumb joint was killing me.
