After 6 months of Julliard-like pre-training, I said, “Please mom, no”, and she listened to me.

Yes – that’s what I noticed when I pseudoplayed it on the table.

I’ve told people for decades, “I can’t read sheet music – I play by ear” but that’s a lie. Fact is, I hate being precise except when _I_ want to be smile emoticon I *greatly prefer* to play by ear (by a ratio of 957:1)

For that moment, I’d just use the pedal likely for the duration of PART of that middle C and let it up to achieve a _similar_ but not the same effect, and consider the music transcriptionist (or original musician if that’s indeed original) to be a sadistic individual who enjoys torturing perfectionists by making them split their right hand into two individualized units for a count of 6.

WAIT A MOMENT – you’re supposed to split your hand into THREE parts?

Excuse my language, but fuck that. I’d use my nose for that 6 count middle C if I had to.

I was suppose to go Julliard when I was 10/11. Took special lessons ’cause my mother’s friends and my teachers ALL said I should.

After 6 months of Julliard-like pre-training, I said, “Please mom, no”, and she listened to me.

Zero regrets. The level of precision required, I would have gotten and I would’ve cracked…. somehow. Nope. No no no. Let somebody else enjoy the pain smile emoticon
