There will be mistakes, hopefully little, but who cares, right? smile I'm hoping this will eliminate the near death experience of being recorded. I figure if you do it enough times, you eventually won't care.

To start, I recorded some work on Triad Inversions. Exciting, right?


SharpCyclist.....everybody makes mistakes, I suppose.....I do not count them...hihi....LOL

My attempt for the day. I don't think recording yourself gets easier. It seems it's harder now. Slipped up at the end, well, because, you know that the end is coming, your heart starts racing and you think the whole world is watching you, when in fact nobody really cares, lol. Maybe I need to stop drinking so much coffee.

After listening to it, I do need to slow it down - at least during recording mode. I'm pretty sure I play it at slower tempo when not recording myself.

Thanks smile The feedback I got today during practice was to pay attention to dynamics and there are areas that could be more legato.

I haven't been playing for long (I'm about halfway through Alfred's adult beginner book 1) but I've been trying to learn Arietta (from the ABRSM grade 1 book). The song has is a lot harder to learn than I thought it'd be! Gonna keep practicing it for sure.

Started to learn a Beethoven Russian Folk Song. I can play both parts separately but need to practice playing them together! Played some more of Arietta today too. I got the first 4 bars down to speed. Hoping to have it all done by the end of the week.

Working on some II-V voicings for Satin Doll. Also came across a super cool arrangement of Moonlight Sonata together with Cole Porter's Night and Day. Found this in a old issue of Keyboard Classics magazine. Also came across Brazilian Prelude based on Chopin's Prelude No. 4 in E minor. Pretty cool stuff and a blast to play.

I played Little Richard's Tutti-Frutti in C major...

Of course, it ain't Tutti-Frutti unless you play it and sing it too; and, you have to get the "Wop-bop-a-loo-bop-a-lop-bom-bom" just right.

Sometimes I change it around a bit to "wop-bop-a-doo-mop-a-lop-bam-boom", but either way it sounds nice.

It put a smile on my face and a gleam in my eye for a little while. smile

Today I was working on the piano intro to Bruce Hornsby's "The Way It Is" in honor of its 30th birthday. I also played some scales, arpeggios, and cadences. My arm felt very tired after painting a lot this week, so I didn't play any of my classical stuff or other pop stuff.

Sadly, I was painting a CEILING....my least favorite thing to do! Painting pictures would be much more fun, though I might get more paint on MYSELF than on the canvas! LOL!!!!
