Newman~ Fantastic original lyrics and melody line. I am so glad you captured Y.O.U. the way you did. You have a fine sense of rhythm and your enthusiasm shows in your music and voice. Loved the final comment! Great way to start the February piano bar, for sure.

Teodor~ Pretty nice original music there - very good. Cute cat.

Amaruk~ Another fine multi-media presentation. As usual, you play with a great deal of sensitivity and patience, as though you are listening very carefully to what you play.

Weiyan~ Great video - I like your interpretation very much - one of your best!

Peterws~ beautiful playing and accompaniment to an incoming tide against the rocky shore. Thank you!

Whizbang~ I'll listen to Scott Joplin any time - he is my favorite Ragtime composer. I appreciate very much that you did not rush this beautiful melody and brought out some subtle dynamics.

I haven't recorded anything in several months. So I decided to post a song that I posted awhile back.

The Theme to Schindler's List.

Inlanding That was quite the improvisation!! I liked it so much I wanted moreā€¦ way more! The good thing with youtube is that you can play it again so easily. I see that you are taking part in the ABF recital this month too. I am looking forward to hear that piece also! Thanks for sharing!!

Augustina Great playing! I never watched that movie (seems too sad) but this piece is very beautiful.

Inlanding - This is a very modern semijazz style which I greatly admire. But I find myself on the periphary Deep in the mire
So I cannot aspire. But can instead perspire . .

Is there a village Idiot`s guide to this style?

Augustina - Schindler`s List wasn`t a barrel o` laughs. And you conveyed that very well.

My grand I use most of the time when I practice and the rest of the family is OK with it (or don't say anything at least...). The digital piano I am performing on in this video I use when I want to record or to play along with my son who then plays on the AP.

My other DP lacks speakers and I use it for practice at night. Recording a DP with speakers makes things much easier as I can use the speaker sound for synchronizing the recorded sound (internal to the DP) and the sound from the cameras. My video editor even does this automatically which is really great. Synchronizing one camera and the DP sound manually is tricky and if you add a second camera to the mix it does not get any easier.

Augustina~ Your interpretation of John William's composition is beautifully done. Glad you brought it out again.

Thank you Amaruk ~ So glad you liked the quick improvisation idea. At some point I will start to make these a bit longer, but still working on getting through the nerve injuries which makes practice happen at a premium.

Newman~ Thanks for the mention - I am glad you found an older tune to bring out - it was fantastic. So glad you liked the hand-dance.

Peter~ thanks for the acknowledgement! That was an original free-play improvisation. Some improv and free-play tunes on my YouTube channel might sound like they are influenced by a more familiar/relatable style.

I was expecting that final "James Bond" chord at the end there . . . . . .

Your piano sounded lovely and non resonanty for an acoustic grand. Have a word wi those guys on the "piano" forum; they need educating a tad ..

Newman -- very nice song. I listened to the end.. yes, you did it!

Teodor -- that was very pretty. Nice understated style. I take it that is from some video game?

Amarak -- Wow. Great video and very smoothly played. What a good start for the Feb piano bar.

Weiyan - What a nice melody. You get more musical with every submission.

Peterws - You captured the feel of those waves washing over you.

Whizbang - I hadn't heard Joplin's Paragon Rag before. Transported me right to the honky-tonk saloon, where I could see you playing in bowtie and red arm garters.

Augustina - I remember your Schindler submission from a year ago. Well done.

Glen - Bravo. Enjoyed both of your improv's. Really like the way you mix in some stacatto's and switch up the style a little in Patience.

That is not me...it is a guy (member here I believe), who I follow on you tube. Glen's stuff seems to have the same feel as this guy.

And that was his digital, he has a Steinway too...check out his utube channel.

peterws~~ left off that last chord, yes...not sure why, it just happened by accident. I've not spent much time reading other threads, but I hope those guys get things worked out.

Jimf~~ I really appreciate your encouragement!

Mark...~~Thanks so much - - - I'll have to give 7notemode's channel a listen - that guy can really cook!

Here are a few tunes from August, November and December 2012, perhaps okay as background music? Thanks for indulging smile

Yes from Resident Evil. The score of the whole series is quite good. Puts you just in the right mood.

Inlanding A nice trio of easy listening jazz/blues . . . I heard ya sneeze at the end o` the second . . .

I`m in this restaurant see, getting late, the piano`s playing, the atmosphere`s intimate, somewhere in the heart of the English Lakes on a warm summer night. The windows are open, my lady`s sat opposite in her best short frock. I`ve kicked off my shoes, and my right foot has found it`s own way, somehow, along the inside of said lady`s thigh . . . the piano keeps playin . . . nobody knows what`s going on.

Then I glance at the table cloth - it`s an awful lot shorter than I thought . .

Ahh, Short Table Cloth Blues, eh? Sounds like a great time, albeit a bit of a situation, though. Did you manage to get a bite? ...and it's a good thing the piano player at your restaurant kept his focus.

Glad you liked the renditions, and I was pretty distracted by the phone ringing on one of them.

I'm late getting to the bar this month. Wow, I have a lot of catching up to do.

Newman, Y.O.U - I like it, but I think it could sound amazing with an ensemble backing you up.
