There--now I feel better.

The fingers on my left hand keep getting confused!! My brain seems to have difficulty sending signals to the correct finger!

I'm learning new stuff for my lessons. Being primarily a chorder who uses picking patterns, it is different using my left hand to help with playing melodies. My right hand is taking to it like a fish to water.

I am learning finger style and this is a constant battle.  The cool thing is when I get a passage right - I feel like pausing and patting myself on the back!

Keep on practicing...   ;)

Deb.... you will do fine.. I would just remind you ... go slow.... go very slow.. and don't leave a measure until you have it down....  AND....... go slower... Oh, did I mention..... go slow.. (you have to "wire" the nerve paths)
Anyway, that works for me....  :)

Thanks! It's hard not to try to play as fast as I hear the music in my mind. I worked ssssslllllooooowwwwwllllyyy through the measures that were giving me the worst problems after I vented, and they are going better. Patience is not something I have a lot of--plenty for other people, but not much for myself. I appreciate the encouragement. I keep reminding myself how many times I ripped out the knitting of my first pair of socks...

A metronome might help in slowing things down.  I am pricing them out myself...

That's a good idea. My daughter has one for piano practice. Maybe I should borrow it!
