Setting a goal to have the Menuet, both the first and second parts, memorized by the end of the week. I really want a piece that’s involved that I can keep coming back to, and have it in memory. It’s becoming easier to memorize if I pick the right shapes and chords to memorize. Worked on the major section tonight. No rhythm – focus on keeping my hands relaxed. Still need to work on breathing; I’m finding myself short of breath at the end of my sections.
Yet, what seemed insurmountable last month seems like merely an uphill climb now. This enhances my willingness to practice, which has never really been low, but some days it is better than others.
