7th Goldberg Varation (Bach)

Uploaded .

This is my first run through the 7th Goldberg variation. It’s been about a month since I started practicing it. This is the first time I “made it”—meaning, it’s a bit fumbling and pushes and pulls, but hey, I hit all the notes!

I’ve played piano for 10 years for fun and for composing; but never really dived into learning it “for real” as an instrument.

It’s become more and more clear to me that one of my life goals is to learn how to play the Goldberg Variations. I dream of being 75 years old, gray, sitting at the piano all morning long, perfecting these beautiful songs.

So, this is my first fumbling foray into realizing that dream. I figure it’ll take 20 years to be able to play through all of them (much less do them any sort of justice.)

Quite the undertaking and an even better reward.

that's not a bad ambition.....the 1000 mile journey starts with one step(couldn't remember the original quote) and very good fumbling it was too....I shall keep my eye out for you when it's complete........
