Lot of lessons learned yesterday.

I had a great time there. CC2 has two of the most powerful pianos I heard to date. He did a great job on the action of the Mason and Hamlin.

The Indian food was delicious (found out it was from the Curry Club in Setauket, not far from Stony Brook University).

I admit that playing piano involves more muscles than you think (I did not realize your back and neck muscles had to be relaxed, and my posture can use improvement). This explains my struggle to reach the keys at times, and I thank everyone who pointed this out to me.

The important lesson I learned is to start slow and build up speed. I imagined many of us went through this as well. :rolleyes:

Still recovering from a late night (left around 9:45pm(last one to leave) and got home within 35 minutes (traffic was light on the LIE and the parkways). Perhaps I should had a cup of coffee before I left, but was OK as I had the window opened and the nice gentle breeze blowing on my face as I was driving.

Dan,

I would really like to thank you and Pam for the abolutely the best weekend I have had in a very long time. It was really wonderful to meet you and Pam, and meet your two grand babies.

The food was really great. I like Indian food, and don't get it very often up here in the sticks.

I'm still flying up in the clouds, and it's Monday afternoon! \:D

John
