BillM; Gorgeous rendition of this beautiful song... based on an old Russian folk song. smile

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Those_Were_the_Days_(song)

Here's something I did a few years ago.. I used the Mandolin setting on my Roland (supposed to sound a little like a balalaika). confused You've inspired me to try to redo it, though..

Stumbler - a curious piece. Until today I didn't realise strathspey was a style. I googled it.
Bill - you really bring out the lyrics in this one and, yes, evoke the melancholy. PM me for a little more info.

Elssa - I really liked your more upbeat interpretation. I'm not surprised that you have recorded this one - we seem to have very similar tastes in music. I particularly liked your ending including your cat's contribution.

It is amazing how you can put out so many great performances here. As I have said many times, your voice is golden and your piano playing is fantastic as you look so relaxed in front of your great piano. It is a true pleasure to listen to your contributions here. You need to release a CD with all your covers!! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks, Bill and Amaruk. You are too kind. There are many more originals to draw upon and turn into piano based rather than guitar based songs. A lifetime of listening to, playing and singing Beatles songs has left its mark!

Stumbler - The March of the Campbells (or McDonalds)! A very Scottish flavour. Full of purpose.

"Those were the days" Loved this Bill. Super arrangement; piano could do wi being a tad louder, mind (mho) It`s a lovely instrument. What model is it?

Here`s another. Rough and Ready version. I`m working on the bits I sort of skipped over. And it`ll be slower because I prefer it that way . .

There are many wonderful music this month.

BillM: Your voice is very touching. You sing with passion.
Those were the days: Its touching.

Amaruk: The difficult Easy Piano is well played. I enjoy it.
Wish4 Thing: Very good. Its baroque feel. If give you comment, I would like to say you can pay attention to one hand only at each time. From 1 min onward, your left hand seems less confidence. At 37 sec, transition from right hand to left hand has a gap. Try copy LH and RH score to same staff. The music is not divided to LH and RH. LH and RH cooperate to make same line of music.

I am a newbie, I have 99% confidence I am wrong.

Amaruk: The Polish Dance. Wow, passionate. I never think I can play it. The movie is very good. Enjoy it.
Greener: Thank you for the music of Bugs. Its funny. I enjoy it.
sislermi: Final Fantasy X Soundtrack, very good.
peterws: The Irish Winter is rather warm. It like winter in my city. The Bach French Suite 5 is very good.
Ellsa: Near You, music make as closer. Thank you for the music and the video. Your rendition of The Those were the Days is very good.
Newman: You and Me, very good song. Enjoy it.
Stumbler: Miss Drummond of Logiealmond's Strathspey. It seems blues progression! Wow! Enjoy it.

Weiyan,

Well done on the Bach prelude. It is a lot of fun watching your monthly progress via the pieces submitted to the bar. Keep up the good work.

Elssa - thanks for sharing the Aristocats video, made me smile! In "Those were the days," I don't really like the mandolin sound. It's disturbing. Might have to do with the quality of the recording maybe?

BillM - it's so nice how you can sing and play at the same time. And pretty good too, on both accounts!

Weiyan - is the lowest A key broken? It looks so sad. Bach is really not my thing, but I appreciate the technical difficulties one faces when playing his music.

I have more listening and catching up to do this month, and I will be back. But, just want to quickly comment on what I just heard...

Weiyan; Fabulous job.
Your playing is really coming along nicely and rapidly. You must be practicing a lot. It shows. I love this prelude. This is the best I've heard from you yet. Well done.

Weiyan - Bach's Prelude in C major


Great job!! I am glad that you ordered the adapter for your camera as it is great to be able see you play on your piano now. I like it that you uncovered your action. It makes for a very interesting video. You are becoming a Bach expert. You even had the piece memorized!!

Thank you for kindly encouragements and suggestions. My tuning mentor suggest me to play this prdlude, he said it used all twelve keys of the keyboard.

The lowerest A is broken during move to my house.

I ordered the iPod holder from TaoBao, a lot cheapper than Amazon.

Uncover the piano make the sound open, but I still not satisfy the sound quality of the video. I also like to see the action dancing.

Ok. I'm on a roll now. Here's a song I wrote in 1980/81


In Love With Love

It's one of my wife's favourites.
