There's a long way to go on this, still. Another week and half is beginning to look optimistic. Maybe end of the month. I got a rush of blood to the head with this, the first few bars seemed to easy. Remember, I'm just in the littlest foothills of the first mountain of a range of mountains. Meanwhile, to paradoxically inspire and depress, here's the full grown up version, played by a grown up - whilst being, mind, a work written by a five year old. Encouragingly, the first part looks and sounds familiar: far off, but not out of reach.

The Minuet: Day 6
Two sessions today, about 40+30mins, (though I rarely keep a good note of the time, and it passes by quickly). Started the first and finished the last with the Hard Bar. But mostly I spent time on the preceding bar, (bottom left hand corner of the first frame on the YouTube clip below), which I realised I couldn't do with both hands. It's difficult because the first LH note is a half note - everything else is a quarter. So that was a challenge, remembering to hold that longer. I got there, kind of.
