Played and worked on many things from Solos for the Harp Player in order to build my stamina back up and keep things in playable order.

Fuga does not sound as awesome as I thought. I'm taking too many breath breaks and speeding up too much.

Tambourin sounds better than I thought.

Recorded both, need to do that every day and really pick the parts I like and work them so they always sound that way.

Forgot about the whole "callus peeling off after a break" thing. Super.

The other thing about coming back to the harp after a break is trying to sit up straight and how tiring that is.

Took the first tape line off my fiddle.

Sick all of last week. A week + was too long to let pieces go, too, so no recording this past weekend. Hands are really stiff.  I'm disappointed and not looking forward to having to work Fuga and Tambourin back up.

Fiddle, on the other hand, was good to let go for a week. Things fell into place much more easily. Pinky slides were working. Regular slides were working.
