Glen,those tunes are better than background music.
Perhaps they are indulgences for us.

I don't have anything new yet, but here is something I haven't shared.

Yet another Scottish fiddle tune.

Lady Campbell of Ardkinglass's Jigg from William Shepherd 1st collection

PeterWS - Conshorto your own work? Nicely done
Stumbler - Lady Campbell certainly liked those those little trills
Inlanding - I love the swing of Sneeze and the cool blue of Still Evening

Here's another original, written around 1984-86 (I was trying to emulate Bowie when I first wrote it). I'm not sure how well it works "converted" to piano. I wasn't going to post it ... but after hours of work on it ...


Ghosts and other strangers

(Had enough of these yet? I could go on for a while ... )

A neat piece I found in one of my new books:

http://www.amazon.com/Essential-Keyboard-Repertoire-Vol-Musicianship/dp/0739028537#reader_0739028537

Sounds great and a good reminder of eighth notes against triplets.

[b][/b]BenPiano - nice, has a familiar ring to it from one of the better known classical pieces (which as an ignorant in these matter I can't name). When the camera went out of focus the first time I thought it was me!

Here is a song by Harry Chapin from 1974. I liked the way he told stories in his music. This is one of my favorites of his. I took some liberties with the lyrics and eliminated the second verse but you can still get the picture.

Cats in the Cradle

A few hour later, year of Dragon is over and year of Snake is commencing.
At this moment, better to enjoy music.

peterws: Your interpretation of Sailing is very special. It has some feeling of new age. Never mind minor mistakes, for those mistake make the music perfect. The comtemplation is very good.

Whizbang: This is my first time hear the paragon Rag. I enjoy this expressive rag. I also like playing rag, but its too hard for me at this moment.

Glen: I like your short improvisations. You are a good improviser. Your background music is very nice.

Augustina: Schindler's list is one of my favor. This is my first time hear piano cover. Its very nice.

Mark...: The jazz piano is very good.

Stumbler: Lady Campbells Jig is simple. I like this kind of fiddle tunes.

Newman: Your singing is so good. The piano comp is very good too.

BenPiano: Stephen Heller's piece is very good. After some pop pieces, this is really fresh.

BillM: I also like this way of telling story.

Ben Piano - very Beethovenesque, a la "Moonlight" wi a bit o` Back twisted in. And the piano sounded as clear as a digital . . best acoustic I`ve heard,

BillM - Excellent, man. Dunno who Harry Chapin is, but I just thought "Kate Bush". She was a contemporary, and her music was soooo similar. . . enigmatic.

Newman - Great tune - you have a spectacular voice. I noted the "I did it" at the end. I'm either cursing at myself or quietly saying "I did it" at the end of each recording attempt!

(the '81 version is pretty sweet too - nice guitar funk goin' on there smile )

Teodor - Nicely done!

Inlanding - I always enjoy your compositions. This one (Consequence) has an elegant feel that is a little different than what I'm used to hearing from you. I like the assertive bass line.

stumbler - One of the things I like best about the Piano Bar is the diversity of music styles performed here. This piece lends itself quite well to the piano and you do a wonderful job of keeping up the tempo on this tune. Love the trills.

Newman - Ghosts and Other Strangers - works really well on piano.
I tried to imagine Bowie's voice as I listened. I think it fits.

BenPiano, that is really beautiful.
I had to go look to see if it was in IMSLP.
It is there as no. 15 in his 25 Etudes Op. 47

For some reason, Roland makes it very difficult to find.
