Thank you, Andrew! Yep, you’re right, totally music reading. I was so close, but didn’t trust myself enough. I know that the more I memorize the easier it will become. Also, I noted for myself on this piece I was getting a much better feel for finding my notes by ear.
Thank you for the great feedback. I’m working my way through the feedback for others as well. As lisadmh pointed out, such a great resource for hints and instruction.
