Lisztener I love that tune. Your performance of it was exceptional.

Ben, all of your tunes are always instant favorites and your performances are almost unbelievable they are so perfect.

SHAM-WOW my friend!

Jotur, you can open a new window (or tab) on the forum, and read threads there. (Right click over the ABF "breadcrumb" on the header, and choose "Open in New Window" or "Open in New Tab".) The window (or tab) with the music can continue to play while you browse in the new window/tab.

Monica, great video. I really envy your ability to play those fast left hand arpeggios! Really nice ending, too. Liked that arrangement overall.

Lisztener, very well done. You really have enviable technique, a really professional touch, and lots of good feeling in your playing.

Z32 - that's awesome! Fascinating piece of music (love those chord changes), great playing.

I'm feeling a bit intimidated by all this piano prowess this month - but here's my piece - a catchy jazz waltz called Bluesette, spiced up with the best I can do for chord substitutions:

I am playing the piano, but the other instruments are computer-generated.

Ed, what a wonderful smooth jazzy piece. smile Tell me something... I'm always curious how these computer-generated accompaniments work. Do you just play your piece and the software comes up with everything automatically on its own? Or do you press some button that says something like "snare drum on" or whatever?

Phillip, I commented on your other thread, so all I'll say here is... WOW!! What an achievement!

z32, What an ominous sounding (and ominously difficult sounding) piece. Very enjoyable, if a bit frightening. grin

Ed, I've always enjoyed this piece, and your version is really sweet. Relaxed, but not TOO relaxed. wink

It's funny the way that music can expound your emotions. The other day I listened to Lisztener entry and marvel at his ability. On the other hand today I listened to it and was teared up 20 seconds in. Thanks a lot Lisztener!

I need more performances and fewer excuses on that blog. But it's fun, and the comments and emails are great motivation.

Thanks for reading.

Monica,

I found an easy way to sync the sound and the video. Here's the process I used. Import the video into Move Maker, then import the audio. Drag them to the appropriate spot. Then, MAGNIFY the bottom part (make it a larger portion of the screen and use the magnifying glass to make it the segments larger -- that is, to expand the time reference). Without muting the sound from the Flip video you will be able to see the spikes in the sound -- line that up with the spikes from the Zoom and, viola, you have it! Took me about 10 seconds to get the alignment perfect. Then you can mute the sound from the flip video and just go with the Zoom audio (which is, of course, much better).

Here's a short clip that I was playing with to test the process.

[Here's where Monica reveals her total lack of technical sophistication and/or fine hand-eye coordination] Believe it or not, Ed, that's exactly what I attempt to do. But it takes me considerably longer than 10 seconds to get it exactly right. laugh

I'll even leave the audio on 50/50 from Zoom and Flip, and then listen for when they overlap completely. My daughter, incidentally, preferred "Greensleeves" when I had them off by a split second... it created a not unpleasant echo-ey effect, and she thought I should've posted that one instead. laugh

Monica,

My virtual instruments were generated by Band-In-A-Box software (www.pgmusic.com) . To create an accompaniment, you type the chord symbols (e.g., Dm7, G7) into a grid, select the number of choruses to play, select a style (there are many), tell it whether or not you want it to create an introduction or ending, etc, and click on play. It can also provide piano accompaniment, but I turned that off. If you want a soloist to “improvise” (virtually, so you can practice comping), you just select an instrument and improvising style (again, there are many), tell it which bar to start at, which bar to end at, etc.

There are a couple of screenshots in this thread, if you are interested:

http://www.pianoworld.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/1007045/2.html

To have Band-In-A-Box play the actual melody, you have to program that in, note by note, which is a bit tedious.

Its a fascinating piece of software. I’ve learned a lot from it.

Darn, and here I thought I'd found a way to make your life easier. <sigh>
