Please refrain from becoming personal to the point of being insulting. Maybe this was ok on the Chopin forum but it isn't here. If you can not handle critique in a normal way you had better not be posting in the Audition Room - or anywhere else for that matter.
I have moved this topic into the Technique section, where it belongs. Audition Room is intended to submit recordings for possible inclusion on the site, not for recordings that you know are only halfway there yet.
Self will completely stop because it seems insanity does not register
self found out the thing about the audition room after already posting
the post was a joke
stop seriously criticizing it
Reality check: This etude is currently out of your technical range....
Everything is within one's range
to self this is an insult of the greatest degree
...I can't run a four-minute-mile, no matter how much I want to and there's not a damned thing I can do about it.) Be honest to yourself.
never put yourself down, in an attempt to make a realistic comparison with self
how does one run a four minute mile?
its starts with belief
but without belief practice is irrelevant
self whole heartedly believes that if you say you can to do something
but if you say you cant -youll always be right
Now lets really be honest
why is it that so many people are unable to run a mile in 4 minutes?
Virtually everyone's body is capable of this feat
save for atheletes like Lance armstrong, people's bodies act almost completely the same
at some people they saw this slender ectomorphic guy pushing down track in an insane fashion
and instead of thinking -wow thats great and i can be like that too
they think somewhere along the lines of -wow thats great and ill probaby never be able to do something like that
they only see the finished product
they dont see the runner training day and night for years to get to that level
and they discount themselves before they try
and if they do try, they try with doubt in the back of their minds
because no matter how damned hard i try "I can never be like that"
there is no such thing as try- there is only do and not do
If you havent gotten to where you want to be you havent invested enough of the right time
the right time meaning: time spent learning how to shave off even milliseconds
much like sitting down and doing hannon mindlessly wont help your technique
simply going for a jog with no real purpose wont help you run a 4 minute mile
Self know good and well what it takes to play this piece
self is in no way delusional or asking to be told self cant do something
self knows that rec was full of mistakes
What you dont know:
self spends two-three days max at the piano a week
Since quitting self's second job this time will increase
Before there was only time for maintainence and a little fun
progression with all the pieces self is learning was not really an option
fun is what the recording was
not an attempt to show the world how flawlessly and effortlessly self playing was
All of selfs post, even the seemly angry one
was done with a smile on selfs face (though a little less so with the above one)
