A 36 Day Diary of Gig Preparation 7

I am a little disoriented today.I stayed up too late last night reading musician interviews.I have been reading about and playing arrangements and studies by Emily Remler.I usually try to find something else to do musically that has me on my instrument but not over-drilling on the tunes for the gig.

I am still spending most of my time on the new tunes.My memory is continuing to improve.It is important to understand just how much information one is attempting to assimilate into a performance.Remembering one or two more measures per tune each day is good progress.That is all that is necessary to start connecting sections of tunes together.

Maybe we should call this: Memory Momentum.

As a side note, Claire and I have been developing our own repertoire.So far we have; Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star; The Alphabet Song; and The Itsy Bitsy Spider.I want to make a video, but she will not even sing for her mother.Also, she gets the ‘Deer-in-Headlights’ look when I turn on the webcam.
