Well done to you.

Nothing funny in that.

Yes, another well done from me! I currently teach a pupil who started lessons after retirement and has currently passed grades 1, 2 and 3. Yes, agree these are a tricky set of pieces but it'll be worth it!

And another well done from me.  I did G1 at 59 and G2 at 60, and I haven't stopped yet!

Hi Bleamy, how did you find the G6 Bach Prelude ?

Think I've mentioned on another thread to you that I'm doing the same 3 G6 pieces you just did ! No probs with the Merikanto and Bartok - but boy the Bach. The fingering is hard to work out without tying myself in knots. Any tips ?
