This is a miracle piece. In the Fall of 2007 Tyler began studying this piece and he had the most difficult time getting the rhythm right. For weeks he tried separate hands, with the metronome, without the metronome, playing by rote, tapping his foot, etc. and nothing seemed to work.
I finally gave up and assigned him a new piece. And wouldn’t you know? Tyler came back to the studio proclaiming that he could finally play Conestoga blues (Baily). I was doubtful, but I listened anyway, and was pleasantly surprised!
Congratulations Tyler on a job well done.
