Hi piano barflies,

Are there any early birds out there ready for the October Bar? I am starting off this month with 2 versions of Misty. All beginning Sudnow students learn this song. I have had several inquiries recently about the Sudnow Method. I figure the best way to answer questions regarding the Sudnow sound is to post the Sudnow sound. In fact, that is how I decided to choose this course in lieu of other courses offered on the internet. Someone had posted their Sudnow Misty on Piano Word. I listened to it and was sold on the sound.

The first link is David Sudnow’s infamous dot notation version. This version is how it would sound as played by a newbie with no previous music or piano experience. The newbie is reading the dot notation finger placements only. Though you will hear no movement, you will hear those lushly voiced chords.

http://www.box.net/shared/yp1aovo8sq

The second link is how I play Misty today. It uses the dot notation voicings and added movement as taught in the course.

Cheers,

Barb

Hi All,

Just to add my Misty here.....but a couple of words first:
Years ago, when I first purchased Sudnow's Method,I first learned his dot version of the song.

Suffice it to say that I haven't been consistently using his Method since I bought the course. I tried other things.

Relatively recently, I decided to commit to use his Method.
When it came time for me to voice a song, again, relatively recently, I picked "Misty." However, the version I included here is my own voiced version of the song, using Sudnow's voicing rules I think about 98 to 99% of the time. So here is my own "Misty," but not using Sudnow's dots or arrangement, but mostly his voicing rules, and my own mistakes! By the way, if you listen closely, you'll hear our pet rabbit making a commotion in its pen. Everybody wants to be a star...

http://www.box.net/shared/xfas78c51o

Thanks for listening,
Angelo

Barb, you're such a lush! I've heard of people ordering a drink before they've finished the one their drinking, or even having 2 drinks in front of them at the same time. But being in 2 bars at the same time? We're here to help you, sister, but first you must admit you have a problem.

Larry,
Yes -- I confess, I have a problem with an obsessive addiction. Are there any rehabs for me?

Ang -- thanks for posting your very cool voicing of Misty. I love it!

Barb, I'll try to locate one, but until then, listen to this song twice and call me in the morning. It's called "Desert Flower" and it might calm your nerves when you get the shakes. http://www.box.net/shared/iniopmhsf9

Larry - Your "Desert Flower" is a very calming, beautifully played piece. I will assume you composed this. Very fine work!

Swingin' Barb- I liked both versions but prefer the second. You played this beautifully. I love the overtones and harmonics of your piano.

Barb - wow! Like the Mistys (Misties?) Yes, the first "beginner" version is still lush, and how cool to be able to hear what happens and you build on it. The second is is very professional.

Angelof - I love your contemplative version of this, too! Just goes to show you can't suppress individuality - nice.

Thank you, Cathy. That beginner version is special - particularly for those with no piano background. They shock themselves beyond belief with those voicings. It is a mind blowing experience for a newbie to make those sounds at the keyboard.

Thanks b528nf7 and Barb. Yes, I wrote it, and no I didn't record it using the Baldwin Hamilton. I always record using the Baldwin L grand. I should try recording on the upright just to see the difference.

Oh-boy, jumping the gun... I just recorded this this morning. It's a little ditty about my latest journey down to Atlanta from Maine. I get a little tangled up in some of my runs but that kind of fits my mindset on that trip.

Peyton,

Thank you for your kind words.

Your tune is so cool. I couldn't stop bouncing as I listened.

I lived in Hot-lanta for 4 years. The tune fit the city well. Those runs didn't sound very tangled to me. Now, Atlanta traffic is what is REALLY tangled.

Great tune!

Barb

Thanks.

The GPS saved me as I drove around the town. But then it skunked me on my way home at around 3 am when it steered me towards DC rather than PA. I think at that time of the morning I would have followed it into the ocean if it had told me to.

angelojf - nice arrangement of Misty. I don't think I've heard it played at that slow a tempo before but it suits this very well.

I love it Peyton!!!! That's my kind of music! grin

Now, if you would have had your piano at the Arts Festival in Atlanta and played that piece, you would have sold more paintings!!! grin

Take care,

Here is another original tune I did called "Play it like you want to". It's a little too fast but for some reason I like fast. grin

Take care,

Barb and Angelo - what a beautiful performances of the song, and very different and individual. I loved it.

Rick, thank you for sharing another one of your treasures!

Peyton, wow. Beautiful song, excellent performance, great recording quality. Wow, what else can I say, other than this is a very professional performance.

I was not even ready for October piano bar... but here you go:

---my first exposure to Vladimir Rebikov (I 'consider' myself a classical piano player, and this is outside of my usual repertoire) - it is very simple but I loved it.

Tatiana,
Very nice job on The Miniature Waltz. It is such a pretty piece. Please do more by Vladimir Rebikov. The style fits you beautifully.

Tatiana, that was a very beautiful piece and you played it perfect. I haven't heard of Rebikov before so it is nice to hear and learn about a new composer. Well done!

My October Piano Bar submission is from my favorite part of a movie I like very much - Back To the Future 1. I was trying for a big finish so I enlisted the help of the Roland Symphony Orchestra on the last verse.
