That was great! I also enjoyed your versions of Hello and Shake It Off. Very nice!

I like this version but it doesn't have the feel that Bohemian Rhpsody should have. This is my opinion

A lack of talent does not stop you from learning piano. It just takes longer and you have to work harder.

For me this lady captures the spirit of the original song pretty well. Though the playing is a bit banging. Not sure if that adds or detracts from the cover. She has several nice rock arrangements so I think she knows the songs pretty well.



Here Guns and Roses - Sweet Child of Mine is nice.

Looks (and sounds) like a brilliant piece of work, well done! I'd like it even more if it were notated correctly - this is supposed to be for advanced players who surely could have handled a D# and a B# in the opera section. (Sorry - just a grumpy old man talking... But the arrangement is great.)

Woolsey's arrangement is very slick and polished; it sounds like classical music and would make a fabulous encore at the end of a more serious program. In defense of Vika, her classical cred is etched in stone as a former competition winner but her "thing" is piano arrangement of mostly hard rock works according to the ethos of that genre. I think that highly polished would be anathema to her.

First post and directly offering selling goods or services. Kevin, you're on the wrong side of TOS. I'm not a MOD so let this be a friendly heads up. You're not supposed to start a thread for the purpose of schilling your own product. You can participate in any thread you like as you see fit. You can certainly discuss arranging rock song for piano but the only self promotion allowed is putting your commercial links in your sig. lines.
