What I Have Been Doing Instead of Blogging



Really, it looks simple, doesn't it? And it sounds simple, too. But for some reason I had such a hard time getting this stupid passage right - figuring out a fingering that made sense (see my scribblings) getting my hands to the right places at the right time, playing a **C** not a stinking **A** (dammit!) Stuff like that. I've finally conquered it, so as my victory spiking of the ball (as it were,) you get a third generation recording of it. (recorded on piano, recorded onto laptop, recorded into phone for audioblogger) Come to think of it, I could have just played the piano recording into the phone for audioblogger. But I'm too cheap to call back.
I still need to polish it up, but at least I can hit all the notes now. :-P


So, for your aural pleasure, I give you the final passage of "Devonshire" by Patrick Doyle, from Sense and Sensibility:


this is an audio post - click to play

Oh, yes, and some of my kids playing in the background.

Candace, that was fabulous. I can't resist this next comment, and, to be fair, you did set it up.

"You can give me aural pleasure anytime..."

ROTFLOL, Winters. *shaking head* Masterful. Truly masterful. Thank you for that bright spot in an otherwise depressing day. :-)
