Discovery: "Hotel California" is vastly easier to play on the guitar in Bm instead of Am. (Conversely I think it's rather easier to do it in Am on the piano) But I'm actually nearly up to being able to play it at tempo, which is awfully fun. The F#m and Bm barre shapes are pretty reasonable, much easier than F anyway, which comes up a few times during the chorus when playing in Am. I think anything up at the 2nd fret or higher is worlds easier than at the 1st.
Back in the world of doing things I'm supposed to be doing, finished grading the most recent assignment for 312.
