        I recorded myself playing Bach's C Minor Fugue from WTC Book I

    I've recorded one <glacius:link page="music/projects/bach-prelude-no-3-csharp-major-recording">Bach 
    Prelude</glacius:link> and I guess now it was time for a fugue. I remember learning
    <a href=",_BWV_847">this prelude and 
    fugue</a> in junior high and the photocopy my piano teacher gave me had the
    words "Amy Grant" circled in the margins. I didn't really care at the time
    as I did not celebrate <a href="">Amy Grant</a>'s
    entire catalog, but later in life after YouTube was invented I was curious and discovered 
    that her totally subtly-titled song
    <a href="">Sing Your Praise to the Lord</a> 
    prominently featured this fugue in the intro.
    And then 25 years later I'm just reminded of how difficult it is to memorize a Bach
<hr />
    Check out another stank face as I flub what is obviously the most difficult part 
    of the piece:

    <caption>I think we can all agree that this part is total bullshit.</caption>
    I should have used a metronome since I vastly overestimated how fast 80 BPM
    is. Which is why I'm playing it at hyperspeed. It's honestly kinda fun to
    play at this speed, but it doesn't sound as good.
