ahh, its a practice day today. I got off to a late start because i stayed up rather late last night. Well actually i went to bed early but my friend called me at 1230 to ask a stupid computer question, so that didnt help much. ANyway once i got underway my practicing went really well. I've been struggling a bit with paganini 11, its sort of easy to play badly, or blandly, but quite difficult to pull off in a musical and interesting manner, so i've been working at that. Also trying to make the slow part of that caprice sound really beautiful can be a challenge, trying to get lots of different colors and phrasings happening. oh well, time to get back to the grind i suppose. I should probably clean the house as well, naah, i'll practice instead.
