Clarke and the "F" Note
April 9, 2008 at 3:26 AM
No, I'm not cursing (quite yet). :)
It's actually quite amusing. Everytime I do this F# scale and downshift from 8th to 5th, I go down to F-natural, not F#. Its 100% repeatable, while my F-natural to A (with the 4th finger) still is not as repeatable as I would like.
I'm starting to experiment with my thumb posisition now. I can get a repeatable D from the G string almost everytime (my thumb is below the neck more). The same is NOT true from the C string. If only I could surgically lengthen my 4th finger by a few mm.... :::sigh::: Oh well, I have to work with what I have.
It started to amuse me the other day when I realized that while I can fully understand Einstein's Theory of Relativity and how speed can affect the passage of time - "Time Dilation" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time_Dilation
, I STILL have a difficult time counting at a constant speed MUCH slower than the speed of light.
Oh well. I'm off to ponder some more scientific theory.
PS. My teacher said I could start working on the Clarke Sonata!!!!! Yipeee!
