The picture of the roller coaster shows you how I feel about the section I’m practicing now. This is mm. 33 and following of the Humoresque, which features shifts from 3d all the way up to 7th positions and all the way in between.

I sat for about 20 minutes working the melody out with my mad one handed keyboarding skills, and that did help me at least hear the melody before I sat down to practice.

But there are still a few more rides to go before I can face this like an old friend.
