me and my vulture

Notes on a weekend

I spent most of my weekend playing on my new beyooootiful piano (pictures tomorrow; the camera was left in the car). It's great; I finally worked out the proper chords for a song I wrote (probably one of my best), noodled through all my sheet music (at least the stuff we brought down), and played Trois Gymnopidies properly for the first time in 10 years (my keyboard doesn't go low enough for the bass notes). Some of the things I haven't played at all in over 10 years, others just sounded so much better on a real piano, you have no idea.
