hmmmm

Something interesting I don't want to forget: playing through something fairly slowly, thinking just far enough ahead that you know what the next note is and exactly where it is relative to where you are right now. Only then do you put your finger down.

The immediate result: you play all the right notes in the right sequence.

The hoped-for, long-term result: having played the passage perfectly, your body remembers it, or remembers that you have done this, so you are more likely to be able do it again.
