'A' little mistake...

February 4, 2009 14:51

  Of course I make mistakes, but this one definitly could have been avoided.

The conductor had our little orchestra playing one octave of G major scale, and called me out to play the arpeggio and then the rest of the orchestra hear and copy my note. Well, I played G, and then what I was thinking B, was actually A!!!

I guess I was half thinking, but I had the whole orchestra trying to figure out the B by hearing my "B", and I guess the conductor didn't even realize that I was really  playing A. (But I guess he knew I was palying the wrong note.) I just laughed at myself and went on.

The assistant concertmaster seems to notice all my mistakes, however. I guess I'll be more careful and do better next time...
