Relative Fingering

Days of COVID: 312
Exercise: dancing in my office.
Welsh word of the day: Nyrs (Nurse).


I'm been watching Season two of Dickinson. Somehow it doesn't seem to have the same hold as the first season. I don't know why. I can't put my finger on it, maybe my mind is busy with other things. It's OK, but it's not Death to 2020, which was good if you haven't seen it.

The piano practice is continuing. Having now paid for a year subscription there is no way out of this, I am going to get my money's worth otherwise it is just throwing it away. I was already pretty committed anyway but really hadn't found the program that would work for me, and now I have.

I think this means I should buy a proper stool, yes this is exactly what a year long subscription to an iOS app is telling me, buy yourself a piano stool and find a house that will fit a baby grand piano.

Over the rainbow is the composition that I am working on. It involves two hands, and movement from middle-C positioning to F positioning so that I can hit high C and then back again and to make things more complex all the notes between C and A, which is six, with only five fingers.

And while reading music, which is getting a little easier every day with my fingers just doing the right things when it sees the notes relative to the note it has just played.
