    I’m just here to whine about my lack of speed. I loving Etude 17, but those licks in the middle!!! After much effort and repetition I’m playing them at 54 bpm with effort. Andrew’s at 80 bpm. Sigh.

    I think speed is the reason I prefer etudes over songs one can recognize. I can slow them down without it being blatantly obvious that I suck. Lol.

    Lisa, Tonight… can be slowed down to 75% and still sound GREAT!

    Ha, after practicing all day, to the point of sore fingers, I can now play that same lick at 55 bpm.

    75% is usually my goal.
