Sliced my finger on glass, another harp string broke. Not practicing.

Arabesque 2 - Can't figure out how to speed it up and have it still sound like I want. Maybe need to record.

Chaconne - Still working on line 8.

Chaconne - This needs way more work on consistency at high speed. I need to chain and focus!

Arabesque 2 - Still can't get past the first measure, but my hands are getting slowly stronger, I think.

Going to get a mute for my violin today. :)

Sometimes it's nice to only have 10 minutes to practice, I end up focusing really specifically.  I need to find some way to translate that to my regular practice.

Also, drilling one specific area, then expecting to play it afterward all the way through doesn't work.  It's the same as practicing the same thing 2 days in a row, I think.

Besides getting my muscles wrapped around playing Arabesque 2 at 100, I still need to wrap my brain around it, as well.  Did a quick 10 min practice today, just enough for hand to be fine, but forearm and shoulder to start feeling it.

Happy Birthday to the only person that reads this besides me! :)
