As of 9:45 AM March 2, 2011, I, Brian Matney, have played all 48 Ferling Etudes to my teacher's approval. Oh what a glorious day this shall be!
Great idea, Angel! I'll have to give that a try. I've personally been revisiting all of the Ferling etudes and playing them with the piano accompaniment CD that comes with the Daniel Schmidt edition. The accompaniments not only make playing the etudes more fun, but also allow you to hear the harmonic progressions easily.After finishing the Ferling Etudes, while they're still relatively fresh in your mind, it would be wise to work out the slow etudes 8va.
