    I wanted to give myself a few hours of solid practice and see how well I
    could stumble through Chopin's mildly famous
    <a href="">Revolutionary
    Étude</a>. Probably one of my favorite pieces, and definitely one of my favorites
    to play. It's basically the only piece in my repertoire that I play 
    semi-consistently, i.e. it's the one I trot out to impress people.
    <a href="">Andre Watts</a> played it
    for Mr. Rogers and after Watts finished Mr. Rogers exclaimed
    <a href="">"I'm so proud to be your friend!"</a>
    Which is basically the greatest compliment a human being could ever receive.

    My most egregious errors were a sloppy left hand in the G&#x266f; minor section,
    and just absolutely wailing that low F instead of the low E. You can tell
    when it happens cuz I break out the stank face.
