Have a reasonably nice piano for the kids, one of them is getting really good. Every once in a while I sit down on a bench with a lead sheet and spell out some chords or plunk out a melody or a riff- just now played the cello line from "Street Hassle" but can't quite figure out a way to do anything more systematic. The problem is, as always, what can or should be done to make it reasonably easy enough and interesting to do in the minuscule amount of time I have to devote to it in order to move in the right direction, or should it be just deferred to the unforeseeable future when there will be more time, or should it just be left to the professionals and upcoming students.

Wait, I just sat down and remembered what to do. Finger out some simple voicings for the left-hand and try to play the melody and comp myself to get going. Never mind.
