Episode #61

https://youtu.be/gbB70_uTxzc

Endurance, control when tired, trying to playing similar phrases slightly different. Keeping good pitch clarity downstairs while not getting "chewy" was challenging - we often tend to throw the notes "somewhere down there" because we are not as likely to miss in the low register (space between partials) - we get lazy. Trying to end strong - don't miss the last high B!

Nicely done. All well said here about our tendencies, but your playing made it all look so easy. If only that were true.

Episode #62

https://youtu.be/Vx9NLMowq90

The biggest challenge for me was flexibility and staying consistently centered on all the intervals across about two octaves. I had to really concentrate on trying to get enough pop on the low stuff. After hearing it now (it was recorded a couple of weeks ago) I would have probably played it a little shorter. It also sounds like I'm a little out of focus - not getting a consistent a color throughout as I would have liked. Some days are better than others...

Episode #63

Endurance was definitely an issue on this one. Another big challenge for me is playing low and soft when I am tired, particularly articulated notes. The octave A slur on the end was a tester...

Did you record these in groups? Or are you just releasing them on a delayed schedule so you can evaluate them?
Nice work again on a difficult etude. I did not really hear any loss of focus, so perhaps you are being too hard on yourself.

I am trying to build up a reserve so I don't feel pressured to finish one (it's psychological, because I always get at least one). This frees me up to attempt harder ones - if I don't quite get it in one day, I can revisit it the next morning and still get another one later in the day.

Once I pair it with the video, that's it. It goes in the queue and I may listen to it when I'm slapping the fronts and backs on before posting on YT. Sometimes I'm pleasantly surprised, sometimes I'm disappointed - just like concerts.

Which was the whole point initially!
