He's not really a wordsmith though, is he?! Regarding his approach, I'm pretty sure Ed McMorrow would not be a fan of this video. He's adding lead all over the place without checking friction. And what about lightening the hammers? Some of those no

The one thing I do a little differently is I have two drill motors, one high speed for the drill and the other low speed for the driver. You just pick up the right one each time, no swapping out the drill bit and the driver bit.

The first version is quite good, but I agree with Tim the 2nd version sounds more confident and is thus, to my ears, more effective. While Martha's approach is perhaps a bit too fast this is one of those pieces by Bach that should be played at a quic
