Lilliburlero: The Video
I was musing last night, thinking out loud, really, whether I should carry on practicing Lilliburlero a bit longer, get it just right, or draw a line and move on. I was taken aback by how emphatically Herself suggested I should draw that Lilliburlero line and move on. "I would appreciate it, and so would all the neighbours."
From a learning point of view, also, it's probably right to move on. I mean, I'm not just learning to play this tune, I'm learning to play the piano, and one tune can only teach so much. Be interesting to come back to it in a few months, and see how much the macro skills have improved.
So here it is, imperfect, (having it recorded adds another layer of difficulty, as a kind of public performance, I found). Still those gaps between phrases, you can almost hear me thinking, where tf do I go now? But, there it is. My first proper tune learnt, first wee foothill climbed.
Next, probably For S/He's a Jolly Good Fellow.
