I think it may be caused by years of typing and using the mouse with my forearm at a bad angle.
If it does not get better before the exam, I'll have to repeat 05 class next year. I believe this 05 class is cursed. Nobody's gonna make it through!
It would be a great pity if you missed the exam, I hope that doesn’t happen.
Many of the hand exercises for my thumb are the same for tennis elbow and it seems to be linked to the forearm muscles and tendons. Stretching, heat and cold therapies seem to help.
I was considering going straight to D06 next yr as many of the pieces don’t seem technically too much harder. I did manage to play quite a few of this years pieces, but don’t have the hand strength to video them, and I’ve read through and studied the remaining pieces. Hopefully backing off to minimal hand stress will put me back on track for next year and I can decide which lesson to follow.
If you guys decide to do D05 I would probably join you. Thoughts?
