Tried to loosen up more last night

I could still feel the nerve running up the thumb side of my right hand being aware of the fact that it was being used … but my hands felt fine afterwards. I’m consciously trying to think more musically so I don’t end up acting like an 8 year old playing each note like it’s coming out of a gatling gun, and just concentrating on the music seems to make my hands relax a bit more — which makes sense. I’m not paying such attention on a too low a level, so I’m not articulating unnaturally.
