    Actually I am satisfied with few (if any) of my WTC and KDF recordings and will need to redo them at some stage. But such an enterprise is not to be undertaken so lightly as I did :oops:

    Could be because your attitude towards yourself seems to be pretty masochistic, and unless your name is Richter, you rather cannot afford this . Have you tried to inflate your ego a bit and blast around how great you are? it could help :D

    Oh, dear....I don't think inflating my ego is a good idea! I'm pretty critical of myself when it comes to piano playing, but I have a tendency to be pretty arrogant otherwise. :lol:

    I sense a good deal of coquetrie here, that's a good beginning :lol: :D :eek: :) :( :cry: :oops: :shock:
    Besides the way we do perceive ourselves has very little or nothing in common with how others perceive us. There is no valid reason to share this precious knowledge. I noticed also that as long as things are not verbalized they tend not to exist, so what we are actually talking about is an effective way of mixing a semantic and non semantic means of communication. This just cannot work, I guess we should stick solely to the music,stay faithful to ourselves and let the "critics" do all the otherways invertive talking :wink: 8)

    So avoid writing "étude" in the beginning of a sentence.
    French capital letters does not need any accent. it's frustrating to write Etude instead of étude. hehe
