Sometimes when I practice it’s like magic. Today I was working on the David Concertino and the technique just suddenly came together. I tried to analyze it, and then it started to pull apart.

But now I’m off to do theory homework and sleep.
Sometimes I think I’m probably the most boring college kid ever — but that is a story for another day.
