Thanks for the comments on my new blues tune, all!

Actually, I was just playing around on the piano Friday night and feeling kind of down (blues all over me grin) and this song sort of came to me. It is a catchy little tune though.

The thing about blues music is that, after a while, it all seems to sound alike; although that doesn’t mean it doesn’t sound really good. I guess most all styles of music are like that to an extent. (I wish I had left off the silly laugh at the end, but my music does that to me… it puts a smile on my face most of the time; or either tears in my eyes! grin)

Anyway, the song is one I’ll add to my “homemade repertoire” grin.

Take care everyone, and keep up the great playing!

Rick

Dude, that chuckle at the end is your trademark, and it's got to stay!

As far as all blues music sounding the same, well, maybe that's true for bad blues music, but not for good blues music. Sure, the chord progressions are predictable and formulaic, but a lot of good stuff can happen within that structure. It's all about heart, and you've got plenty of that, so don't worry.

Isn't it nice to have such an outlet when we feel bad? It sure beats kicking the dog, or telling the wife "yes, in fact, your butt does look fat in those jeans..." Now there's a couple song titles for ya.....

Hi everyone, I'm making an 'appearance' again grin I've been busy gathering up my courage and working on a piece to submit for the Piano Bar (my first), but it still needs some polishing. I may end up submitting it next month...we'll see.

Meanwhile, I've been listening to some of the great contributions here (sorry, there are many so I won't be able to comment on some of the other performances!):

Ladypayne - such a cute piece! It gives me fond memories smile

David - Bach Prelude in G minor is so beautifully played too! Now I'm even more inspired to tackle some Bach - which I will, since I've just decided to concentrate on Baroque music next laugh

Elssa - I really love the Two Guitars piece smile It's the first time I heard it. What voice/s did you use with your DP?

Rick - You've got a great voice! Goes well with the piano playing too laugh

Studio Joe - Very nice playing in "The Shadow of Your Smile." Did you improvise that or were you reading from the sheet? smile

Thanks Marimorimo, Actually I started with an imoprov which I kept adjusting untill I had it like I wanted, and memorized. Then I wrote the sheet music accordingly.

When I recorded, I was reading from the music I had written. Below is a link to the music if anyone is interested.

Hi, Joe -

I printed out your arrangement. I'm trying to get away from always doing oom-pah when I make my own accompaniment, and thought playing and studying yours would give me a boost. Thanks for letting us print it.

@ Joe: Neat! You make your own arrangements! That's like walking on the moon for me grin Thanks for sharing the sheet music - it's now going into my thick pile of "will play someday list" help

Here's my first ever submission here at PW. I've practiced this short piece so much it's a miracle my ears aren't bleeding yet whome Not to mention the nnnth takes with the recorder on! This recording business sure is tough!

[color:#330099][b]Fantasie by Telemann.mp3[/b][/color]
(4shared link - you can play the file from your browser without downloading).

Feel free to flame my amateurish efforts at Baroque music and adding dynamics (I appreciate constructive criticism). blush

I recorded this as MIDI from my DP then added the piano soudfont and converted to mp3 using Synthfont, but I'm still looking for a good .sf2 soundfont. Anybody know one?

Btw, I didn't know Box.net required a membership fee! shocked

Very good! and timely (for me) since I've just been studying the Baroque period of music.

Enjoyed it very much.

hey marimorimo your fantasie piece was nice to listen to and box.net does not require a membership fee. They also have a free option you can sign up for. I think the other two options you can sign up for costs money smile


I am currently uploading all of my written piano sheets onto my blog to make things easier. I also have written out a few more sheets. All free check it out if you want smile Any questions, PM me

Studio Joe: Thanks! I've just started studying Baroque music too, because I read it's good for hand independence.

ladypayne: Thanks for pointing that out! It seems I can create a free account at Box.net so I'll use that next time. And thanks for the comment too smile

To babama...

Excellent playing! Sounds way beyond an adult beginner! Your digital piano sounded great too!

Thanks for posting! I enjoyed it much!
