It’s only six stupid measures, but they exhaust my right hand and brain. I’m really going to have to cut this thing into extremely tiny pieces before I can get it down well enough to record it. What a pain in the ass.
I am also finally beginning to appreciate the old advice given to pianists to not look at the keys, because your eyes aren’t fast enough to use as a guide once the music starts getting too out of hand. It’s just very difficult to stop doing it. It feels like working without a net, and I suppose in a way it is. I still hate it, even though I’m a bit better when I do it.
