Right, hammer reshaping is not a good thing to mess with if you're a beginner or DIYer. Besides potentially ruining the hammers you have to be prepared to work on the regulation - any change to the hammer weight or length is going to change how the o

Are you saying that you you find the fingering suggested in the score ambiguous? It's not at all ambiguous to me: a finger number does not appear on the 4th line until the 2nd measure. So the parsimonious interpretation is: don't change fingering

Your automotive analogy is accurate. "You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear." A competent technician can make a piano as good as it can be. Keep in mind that "as good as it can be" may still not be very good. I just came

Really, it's hard to find jazz tunes that don't, at least in part, use the ii-V-I progression. After 1960, folks starting writing tunes that didn't use that, but before that, they all did. Just crack open the Real Book and you'll likely find ii-V-I
