Dedication

I don't think I've ever spent 2 hours solely dedicated to playing one tune over and over again. Until now.

But oh man, learning Jean's Reel solely from recordings was worth it. The largest issue was that nobody seems to play it quite the same way.

Dammit. Donnelly's Reel is fiendishly catchy, especially the first 8 bars of the B part. Now it's going to be stuck in my head all day until I get home and have the chance to actually play it.

Why yes, I recently purchased a new CD. How'd you guess? In this case, Liz Doherty's Last Orders. (I really should have bought it ages ago, but I never got around to it, especially since I already owned a couple of the tracks. This tune happened to be on one of the tracks I didn't have.)

This would be substantially easier to deal with if I had started listening at, say, 3 or 4 in the afternoon, and not when I came in to work. Or if I had brought my violin with me (and found a quiet spot somewhere during lunch break or something).

Argh. Why is it that the times I want to play music the most are the ones when I don't have my violin with me?

*grumble, grumble*
