Wow. The piano police strike again. You'd think those trying to make a living in this industry would somehow understand what I'm doing here.

Which really isn't anything you should get upset about. As I mentioned in a previous post on this thread, if you don't like it, click away.

I give what I think is useful content in exchange for a link back to my site. No big deal here. It's done all over the web. And more importantly, the mods don't seem to have a problem with it. Those who do have a problem with it should admit it's their problem and move on.

I understand exactly what you're doing here, which is why I posted. We are all trying to make a living but we should do it on our own dime, by buying advertising from Frank so he can keep Piano World going.

People, chill out. I think the more piano/keyboard stuff we can get our hands on is a good thing. Something for everyone. Like he said, if you don't like it, move on. Not a big deal. People are taking this way too seriously --- geez!

Glad you are having a blast, that's what its about IMO. I'm fizzling but have no intention of "fizzling out". grin


At least you're getting a laugh out of it laugh - sorry, couldn't resist.

I, too, was surprised to find that playing simple patterns over and over isn't boring (depending on the mood I'm in, of course). Perhaps it's a sign of piano practice maturity on our parts - we get engrossed in the process of making music, knowing that what we're doing will give us rewards in a longer run.

I have also found that if I have a chance to play by ear with another musician/musicians it helps enormously in learning to do some improv. It forces me to actually listen to what the musicians are doing and "grok" it into my part, and it forces me to not "worry" about the "mistakes" but to listen to them and use them to learn from/experiment with. It's all about the sound and not the sheet music. There's not as much opportunity to do that as I might like, and sometimes I don't take advantage of the opportunities I have, preferring to stick with lead sheets or just stay at home and practice something I'm memorizing. And sometimes I'm trying to avoid embarrassment laugh But in truth, unless we're preparing for a dance or something, as long as I don't completely dominate what the others are doing, the musicians I know are experimental-tolerant, and often encouraging. Don't know if that's an option for you, but it's something to think about.

In my experience even a little improvisational risk-taking brings huge rewards. Nice to know there are others on the road.
