‘leisurely pace’ ~ I like the sound of that. Do you have a different take on it? The James Goodman’s transcription is quite different, in an interesting way…

I play it pretty much like your second comment in the thread. The Goodman one looks interesting, but I admit to being a bit intimidated by that c’.

Thanks for the chuckle TDM… ~ c’
