I was just wondering if anyone here has worked through Liszt's book of Hanon-esque exercises?
I found it at my local music store but all those little black dots scared me a little so I put it back.

I never even realized that Liszt wrote an exercise book...

I should go look for that. Perhaps something about it will magically make it more appealing than Hanon's exercises, and maybe I'll actually be tempted to LEARN something for a change...

Yup.

You've pretty much just hit the nail right on the head.

I don't nomrally mind lots of little black dots... but when you have that many of them in an EXERCISE... no way. Nuh-uh. Not even gonna try. If it's like that for an actual concert piece, then it's different. But those exercises are just scary.

I try my best to avoid improving myself at all costs. :P
