My attempt to like this song is futile. The character of the piece is slow and parkinson-like. But here's an interesting fact: If you transpose ( don't ask me how) down an octave you can play the ENTIRE song on the G string. And that's how it got its name:)

I did a lot of math today. Still added wrongly. The numbers don't add up to the amount I want it too. I HATE math! It has drained me out. Can't do anything else this evening...
I said I was going to sleep by 10pm this evening. Well that worked well. Time for bed. It's pass midnight. I'm going to have a jolly time trying to get up tomorrow morning. Sleep deprived and it's only mon/tues:)

The afternoon saw me ( and the parents ) in the car ( AGAIN) this time travelling in a different direction ie Puchong as a trial run for an up-coming wedding mass. We got lost. My inner GPS failed and the atmosphere in the car was one of muted silence as the driver slowly dragged herself out of the nasty mood she was in. We found the place and managed to retrace out steps back. And as a reward dad bought me the new G12. ( I'm sure he felt responsible for making us miss many turns...as he SHOULD. As a navigator he was not useful at all)

I now realise why secretaries have nice stuff on their desk....because if you're forced to sit at the desk for a good chunk of the working day, you would want to be surrounded by delightful cheerful objects.

Some characteristics of this period; contrasting dynamics, polyphonic, binary. Do not worry I have not suddenly develop a fixation for old men with long hair. This is for the aural bit of the music exam. Just thought I'ld write a post. ( not much of a post rather some pictures....curious about their hair do back in the dark ages)
1. Get better at sight reading by this afternoon
2. Master those nasty arpeggios
3. Play the songs without any slips ( if possible.) And if there are slips to play on regardless.
4. Don't panic!!!!
