Hey Azalais - and thanks for the comments -- Thank you as well, Michael
I'm not at ALL sure my concentration is in good shape these days -- WAY too much self talk going on when make these vids and it, inevitably, leads to foul ups in simple spots
-- and I'm almost for sure that my old teacher wouldn't agree on the economy of motion bit - but he did push it. He was (I assume still is) remarkable to see play - HUGE and complicated sound with apparently NO movement except smooth hands going here and there - inspiring for sure.
When I auditioned for him (w a y back when) I played the bwv 996 Bourree - and I mean I played the hell out of it - heck - I ALMOst danced it while I was playing it

Anyway - thanks again!!
