I work diligently on building range daily, and though progress comes slowly, it is there. My E above the staff has been getting better, but I do not "own" it yet. This morning, while doing the range building stuff with a Strad 180S37/Bach 3C, the E work seemed quite good. I checked with the captive audience; my Mrs., who has had to listen to me one way or another for over forty years now. I asked "That E was quite beautiful, wasn't it?" She replied "Yes, in fact if it was any more beautiful it would make me cry!" This has to be a good thing, right?
