My left hand hurts like hell, but it was for a good cause. Music with dave and victoria was really good tonight. I could just hear things without too much effort, and respond to them, and improvy suchlike things. Dave reminded me of the alternation between F#m7 and G#m7/F# that Coltrane's "Favorite Things" uses. With the right voicing it sounds really nice. I also had some fun after everyone else left with a swing (1-1-1-5)/8 rhythm thing arpeggiating up AEAC and CGCE.
Research is chugging along, still, I think, towards completion. As opposed to up a blind alley.
