Did you ever get one of those days?

This day brings to mind Elvis Presley's song, "Did you ever get one of those days?" when nothing is right from morning to night. I tried to record a video tonight to mark the one month mark in learning this piece and I must have made a gazillion mistakes! I felt like I had regressed - big time! If you've been following this blog, I know you'll probably wonder how I could play much worse than I've already played and I would agree with you - until today! The mistakes have been piling up lately and the piece is so fragmented at different tempos so I have decided to start all over again at the slowest possible tempo with the metronome, which in my case is 32 beats to the half note and work it up to at least 60 - 66 beats to the half note.  When I get there, I'll record a video. Until then, goodnight and thanks for visiting.

In the words of Scarlet O'Hara: "Tomorrow's another day. Fiddle De Dee." Hope you have a much better Wednesday, my dear friend.

P.S. I think you sound great!

Thanks, Kathleen! Yeah, it's better today now I've slowed it down appreciably. It's not so out of control as it was yesterday but I'll have to work it up to tempo again. Hope you're well and having a good time!
