There is a Season
Tonight after a nap, dinner, and a walk, I was able to play and practice. Sections that are weak were taken apart and worked on, and a possible set list presented itself. Playing through Here We Are, I decided I needed to work on varying the intensity of attack of my right hand fingers. Particular attention was given to a combination that begins with a dyad and then an arpeggio in which I want the notes played by the "m" finger to be softer than "i" and "a." The rhythm of this section appears to be making this more difficult, but deep down I know that I need to work on the independence of the right hand fingers. I've always enjoyed these types of technical exercises and tonight was no exception. And now, I shall rest.
