Since fugues come along really nicely I have been mainly focusing on the 1st movement which I have gotten around 75% of the way, but I have also been working on the 3rd movement, though not as much and I have learned about 50 percent of the movement. The 2nd movement will probably be where the real challenge is, especially the second section.
    Enjoy. That sounds like an awesome piece to play.

    I’ve been learning Bach’s C major invention. I recently learned the first piece from Schumann’s Kinderszenen and Chopin’s C minor Prélude. Obviously, I am a beginner.

    Having to learn a load of music hall sing-a-longs, things like Down at the old Bull and Bush, My Old man, Lilly of the Laguna, Lambeth Walk, etc.etc...about 30 songs in total...that'll teach me to volunteer to play piano for a gig at the village hall, let that be a lesson to you all.
    Driving the wife (and myself) nuts with the practice and missing Chopin.

    Nice, at least four of the six are among the most technically demanding pieces in the cannon... Could you post your playing when you're ready?
