Getting in touch with my inner dilettante - holiday playing project

What should I learn in the few days off in Nov Dec? Remembering where the keys are here with some moist. I gave up on Beethoven Son stuff - thinking like a 2 min song max but hard enough to use some problem solving.

Hmm a few shaky bars after a 3 practice sessions. It’s like a tongue twister for my soggy non musician brain but also interesting to figure out. Gonna stick it out but will be slow as fuck

The fatty had to take a break from piano when I cut my finger tip off whilst cooking last month (it grew back)

I decide to abandon Kaupstin cuz for a mofo that struggle with common time these insane rhythms and patterns drifting across the bars in weird ways too much for me without every day practicing.

I order the saint saens etudes 111 sheet music. Should be here in a few weeks. more my style and dun hear them a lot.

A few weeks?

I order off amazon it took over a month for kapustin to arrive for some reason.

Let me see if I can cancel amazon. It still hasn’t shipped.

Plus, I know a lot of Russian sites with pdfs of good editions. E.g. I found a Chopin Waltzes, Neuhaus edition

No need to look around. Totally casual. I will probably abandon this too :sunglasses:
