Thanks, Amaruk. Yes, I always make up my own arrangements.. Sometimes I play by ear and other times might take a basic lead sheet and reharmonize the chords, add in runs & fills, etc. smile
I really enjoyed your "Ave Maria" - cool arrangement and video, as always! cool

I loved your "Ave Maria", too, Candlelightpiano.. beautiful flow - mesmerizing to listen to. smile

TheodorN: That was a terrific version of my favorite Elvis song. thumb

That piano duo performing Waltz of the Flowers was awesome! So enjoyable to watch and listen to. Thanks for the link.

Woodog: What a terrific performance, warts and all. It wouldn't be as human without the warts, frankly, and I thoroughly enjoyed watching and listening to you, especially at 6:06 at the crashing chords! Made the whole piece seem more human, which is what Beethoven was to me, the most human of all composers, the greatest composer of all time. You did justice to the great man!

Candlelight, thanks for the kind words.

I had to put it up as it was because I have a tendency to shy away from playing in public, even though I've been in bands and a church musician for EVER. Go figure...

It's a strange mixture of wanting to share the music, but getting freaked out the minute I think anyone might be listening. Don't know if that makes sense or not... but it's certainly NOT a healthy way to go about this music thing.

That's another reason I was looking forward to the recital, because I had braced myself, psyched myself up and was feeling good about being able to play for my fellow students, knowing that there would be mistakes, knowing that I would get nervous, rush, whatever, and feeling okay about that too. It was a good feeling and I was so bummed out that I didn't get to go through with it.

So when my son showed up with his friend unexpectedly - and both of them are anything BUT classical music buffs, LOL... I figured that was the next best thing, to record it and send it to the folks who were in the recital as well as my teacher.

again, thanks for the compliment! made me grin inwardly today!

Very systematically and carefully laid out. Your theory and practice are coming together; I get the impression there`s gonna be no short cuts! Well done! Piano is great sounding.

Good sound on that piano of yours; how hard it is for a trumpet not to let rip! Perhaps he should've been outside the building . . .! Enjoyed it, man!

Just to let you all know, again. I always listen to the Piano Bar. Enjoy the songs.
I just don't really have anything to say to anyone in particular. Just to everyone, I enjoy it.

Candlelight – a very nice rendition of Canon in D and that Ave Maria…wow! just lovely.

Augustina – Such a lively performance. Good dynamics and rhythm. Well done!

Woodog – I’m sorry you missed your recital. But I bet your son and his friend were impressed just like the rest of us. That was an awesome performance.


Adult beginner since January 2013. My only regret is that I didn't learn sooner.

Hey everybody

After a long break, I've finally decided to upload another video. I'm the proud owner of a Yamaha P105 portable piano, which is a decent upgrade from another Yamaha keyboard (that didn't have full piano keys).

A short background about me: almost 3 years of piano (mostly self taught), and in the last couple of months I've been learning to read sheet music, with the help of a piano teacher

Enjoy and let me know your feedback:

Thanks, Augustina, on my Ave Maria. Really appreciate your kind comments.

Tequilla85: Beautiful rendition of River Flows in You. You have a lovely touch. Maybe it could be a tad bit faster in the middle section but otherwise, it's definitely getting there. For someone who is only learning to read music, you're doing fabulous. Plenty of notes to read in this piece! Keep the music coming!

Tequilla85 You play this very precisely which augers well for the future. Sounds lovely on your piano; the music is eminently suitable . Why not try a bit more reverb/echo?

You're doing good, Tequilla85! A lot easier learning on that P105 than that other one, isn't it? Keep it up.

My first attempt at recording my piano!

http://soundcloud.com/fateskeys/mic-experiment-1

Chopin Op 28 No 4. I was more concerned about doing the recording than the playing shocked Input would be appreciated, my upright isn't that great, and I'm still not sure I've got the mic setup right. (Fishtank and dog don't help either...)

Still catching up here..

LadyPayne: Hope it's a bit warmer up there now. I really enjoyed your arrangement with all the the trills and frills you threw in! smile

Augustina: The Clementi piece was so well played and fun to listen to! These are such great pieces - and challenging as well. smile

Nice playing! The violin isn`t offensive at all. Believe me, that`s a complement . . .and your piano was lovely! Plenty o` light and shade on your pieces. You`ll get better and better! Have fun!

Thanks for the kind comments, Tequilla85. You play beautifully. Your piano is great. It's portable which isn't the case with mine. You can take it everywhere!!!

Happy New Year to you.
