    John, you sure get some points for persistence!
    I watched your video. The beginning third has a couple of ‘rocky’ parts, but around the half-way point and to the end, I think you did a great job. And I see that you are a ‘mouth-mover’. :wink: At least I didn’t hear you singing. And this piece is hard to sing – it’s stuck in my head now and I just tried singing it in the shower. Good thing nobody is home. :lol:

    John, you definitely nailed the groove of that piece! Nice work.

    thanks Monica and Bclever.

    As I consider this is a good take for just one attempt after work. Because I ahve not palyed for 2 weeks,,,,my brian and finger is itching(thast the best time to do the recording) when the "emotinonal energy is high"...

    Yes, I do hum/sing a little bit most of the time in my head but try not to interfer my recordings like Glen Gould :lol: :wink: :wink:

    Yeah, I hear some think that's what credit cards are for. You could win the lottery; that's an option.

    I have to put that on my to-do list; win...the...lottery. Done. :lol:

    Nice performance, John. I played this piece still, too, so, I know, where are the difficulties. It´s not easy to play it constantly accurate and it´s a question, if this is absolutely necessary concerning every note. You hold it out still quite well, but you could work on the accuracy of some details, I think, you know, where are these places.
    You catch the heroic mood of the piece well and it´s a very good begining. Congratulations for this achievement!

    Sorry, but my name is Andreas, is "Andrian" an australian version of it?

    Why, because you have made a second take?! :lol:
