What songs are you interested in emulating? I'm no pro at this so I can't offer you any concrete or specific advice. For me the best I can do is listen, listen, and again maybe listen again.

I don't know really. I'm not that technically proficient at piano. I know most chords and inversions.

Maybe just learning a few common progressive rock chord progressions would help.

Songs like "watcher of the skies" by genesis is pretty cool.

Thanks for replying.

Douglas.

The intro to Firth of fifth is pretty cool to play, i used to play that, but i don't remember how to anymore. It's good training for right hand arpeggios and left hand octaves.
