Steam-burned my thumb today. Awesome.

30 DtD Chaconne. Made notes on how I want dynamics to sound. Listening to myself practice is excruciating.

30 DtD Giga. Recorded my practice today. Hopefully not as excruciating to listen as above. It's choppy, but I can get my enthusiasm to come through in parts.

Repertoire day. I can play Tambourin once before it falls apart. Or so I think. I can pay attention to the first half of Prelude 4 and make a conscious effort to play, but the 2nd half becomes note reading.

Very brief 5 min practicing. Peeling cuticles are actually too painful to allow practicing! ugh.
