    @judiann.maddigan Even though that big chord in variation 2 did not work out very well for my small hand in the end, I was glad that I put in the effort to learn and practice it! Sometime I have came to appreciate about my harp learning is that I don’t necessarily have to make all the pieces that I learn sound perfect or absolutely love playing them. Some pieces are better for acquiring and practicing techniques, and that’s what I will focus on when playing them and accept that I may not get to the point where the piece sounds musical until way later. Some pieces “clicks” with me sooner, and I can work on connecting with those pieces and making them flow a lot sooner. Variation 2 certainly feels like a “technical piece” for me. 🙂
