Short practice today – scales only.

C major 3 octave, C minor 2 octave (although there is no reason I couldn’t have tried 3) and Eb major since I was already in that key signature.

I tried to listen to the shape of the notes today.

Update 8/16 : Practiced 45 minutes today – same scales and Kummer #56. One particular extension is nasty because I have to anchor my extended finger, which is now on D#/Eb and then pivot on it between B and F#.

Also, I’m curious about music theory. This piece is in E minor, and in the Kummer pieces the minor scale pieces seem to have a lot more accidentals in them than the major key pieces. I wonder why.
