Fast forward....

Ok. So, it's been 5 months since I last posted a piece and about 4 months of not practicing my piano. I have a good reason not to. My "crappy" piano is in my garage and it was just too darned hot during the summer down here in southern New Mexico. It gets to about 90 to 100 degrees and a few keys tend to stick. Since summer is over and cooler weather is making my playing in the garage a much more pleasant experience. The cooler weather also helps minimize the few keys from sticking. In fact, only one hardly sticks at all, so that's good. There is no other place to put my piano in. And because of the cooler weather I'm getting back at memorizing "Black and White Rag" by George Botsford and practicing more often to get my fingers and stride back. Next I'd like to play a Zez Confrey's piece called "Dizzy Fingers."
