Well I'm bummed. Even though I've been practicing regularly (daily)...but less (30 minutes a day because work is interfering with play for the moment)...I still managed to hurt myself. You'd think if you were in 'shape', but not overdoing it - you would be getting better when taking it up a notch...not worse! But the combination of bringing my left arm in more and stretching my hand more to make double stops...(maybe in part because of my arthritis?)...has caused an issue. I would understand if I was overdoing for 4 hours a day...but I'm not... So I need to take some time off from playing...tried Friday at lesson...and I couldn't. Yet I have my recital coming up in May...*bleh* In the meantime...guess I'll work on theory and ear-training! I just had my first 'in depth' look at the counterpoint in Bach's Gigue... I've been slacking (work again!) on the bassoon too. Playing it doesn't seem to aggravate the elbow. Not sure if I should do a bit more there while I pull back from the violin...or rest my elbow from everything?
