    Leavitt introduces the key of G Major. It will be followed by F Major, A Minor and E Minor.

    I will try to keep a pace of one key per week.

    Page 32 - Duet in G, plus another attempt at St. Thomas with timing still off.

    Here is my shot on Duet in G. I have started to realize that I am just playing the pieces and not really taking in what they are trying to teach. So I have started to slow down. Studying the piece a bit more plus slowing down on the bpm. I am trying to count along with the piece as well. Tapping foot is ok but sometimes I will get lost in the count. So I am mouthing the count. Trying to add another part of the body into the mix so I know where I am in the measure.

    Yeah, I struggle with time, and also struggle with playing legato. I redid page 32 Duet in G to address those shortcomings. I did a little bit better (maybe).

    Both sound good to me. I know what it is like to be on the "not liking what I play" side. You know where the mistakes are and they are just blaring sounds of ugliness when you listen to them.
