Thank you for watching, Andrew! Also for what you said about the invidious thing. It makes me feel better.... :) I don't think Rainer meant what he said in an invidious way, but I always can't help feeling bad when people compare me to a professional (which happens often!). It's like no matter how hard I practice, I can never get close to sounding good enough. Oh well, I'll keep practicing anyway.... :)

Invidious? Me? I don't even know the meaning of the word. :twisted:

All I meant was that I found VL's speed for the slow section more appealing. Listening to various YT recordings, Kissin clocks in at just over 2 mins, Monica at almost 2:15, and there are several at less than 1:30 (which sound somewhat characterless for being too hasty). VL's represents a good compromise at about 1:45.
