Start the clock

At 7:00 PM Central Time this evening, I started Little Brown Jug. Vegas has put the over / under for my getting it completed at 8.5 hours. I'll let you know how it goes. First impressions? I am NOT liking Alfred's suggested fingering on the RH. I still don't care for moving my RH thumb up and down between white and black keys. In this case, my hands are big enough to cover the spans with 2-4 or 2-5, as needed, but long-term, I think I am eventually going to have to give in on this.

The other thing you need to know is that after an 18 page thread on PW, I finally know what I want to play when I grow up (as a pianist): stuff by Ludovico Einaudi. How long will that take, I wonder?
