It's Fun to Play the Piano ... Please Pass It On!
This was actually my first ever attempt at transposing. I've been listening this for ages and thought it would be a great exercise. I tried a few searches for score but came out with no luck so i thought, what the heck, lets try some sad bastard music transposing. hahah.
Well, great job Rui! Thanks - I'm always impressed by people who can transcribe and/or compose.
Well, it's a blessing and a curse. It made me a lazy note reader. At my accordion lesson once when I was 8 I played the assigned song for my teacher, supposedly looking at the music. When I got done he said "That was very good, except that you played it in the wrong key! He had played it for me at the end of the previous lesson and evidently I learned it by ear, but accidentally transposed it in the process.
I’ve enjoyed the piano bar this month, a lot! (As usual!)
I actually recorded another new song I wrote this morning. I wrote it last night and recorded it this morning. It has a “country flair” to it and reminds me a little of the “George Jones” style. Who knows, maybe I’m really country at heart!
Anyway, I thought I’d share it here on the piano bar… the title of it is “Every time I think about you it makes me feel so young”.
It was early this morning when I recorded it, and I still had bags under my eyes! I’m glad I feel young, because I don’t think I look very young!!
Rick--very nice song. Don't worry about looking old, every time you smile it takes about 5 years off! Funny, I was just looking in the mirror first thing this morning and I thought "Boy, you look like crap!"
Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) was incredibly prolific, both in the number and variety of works he composed and the size of the family that he sired, or fathered. He had 20 children by two wives (7 with Maria Barbera and 13 with Anna Magdalena), only 10 of whom survived to adulthood.
Wilhelm Friedemann Bach (1710-1784) was the second child and first son of J.S. and Maria. He composed many works of his own and was outstanding at improvisation also.
Here are relatively simple Minuets by each from "Essential Keyboard Repertoire", Vol.1:
I really enjoyed the music, Rui, John, and Larry!! And, thanks for the complement, Bill!
And, Larry, I sent you a PM about your YT channel and gave you 5-stars on your YT vid!! I love your Baldwin grand!!
Here is a new song I wrote yesterday and recorded today. I seem to be making a habit of that, for better or worse! This is a little different style of music than I normally play. I think it is a cross between R&B and Contemporary (maybe?). Anyway, I hope you all enjoy it!
wow a lot of more submissions in already! I'll have to catch up on everyone =)
Here's a piano duet me and Augustina finally did! Its chopsticks. We might have to flip flop the camera around and redo it though. Augustina's part seems a little on the soft side to hear :)Hope you enjoy anyway!
I am soft, but hey today was the first time playing duets together in like 2 months. and going from the keyboard to a piano is kind of different:) it was a blast, we will put the song up again when we get faster^_^ I also have a lot of catching up to do. So far I love everyone's playing:P

I'm still chugging away at humphries piano handbook. I'm still trying to figure out what "level" I might be at so I can get some other methods. Any thoughts appreciated. I'm still new at this, so technique suggestions are always welcome.
