I need to play Pavane with ALL the chords slowly broken.

Working on Fuga 2 lines at a time, did 6 today. Slowly and jumping 4 clicks from 54 to 126.

Last measure of Folk Song maybe needs a slow approach, too.

Pavane chord work better when rolled more. May need to muffle some notes so pedal changes are covered. But I have to listen to the recording first to know for sure.

I'm modifying Folk Song to play single notes instead of octaves because I can't play it otherwise, due to elbow issues as well as my harp having no room in the upper registers for my huge hands.

Fuga needs constant work.

Listened to recording of Pavane.  It sounded better than I thought, but then there were other things I didn't notice, like I tend to speed up without the metronome, and don't take enough space between phrases.  I think it's a good thing I scheduled myself to record it 5x.

Sort of got another measure of Folk Song I.
