Out of Shape

We have started recording today, just a little. Murray’s in Drew’s studio for a week to lay down some tracks, and they’ve rented this Stienway baby grand piano. I’m like “holy crap,” so I started practising today. I learn a song where the piano definitely sticks out in Murray’s demos, and after about 30 minutes my pinkies start to get tired. Wow. I’m really out of shape. So I did some of The Virtuoso Pianist piano exercises by Hanon. After that I didn’t feel so bad; my fingers just need some daily workouts. You know, push-ups and crunches, finger yoga and hand pilates. Get that core stronger. I gotta get back to it: baby’s sleeping, daddy’s working, this is my chance!
