David_B,
I have a supsicion that if someone else posted a video and asked what you thought, you wouldn't be nearly as critical of them as you are of yourself. I don't think your runs sound bad at all! Of course they aren't going to be as good as Duane's (he's been doing this for decades and you're on year 1 or 2), but you seem to be keeping the runs in time and they flow. That's all that's required! There's nothing jarring or disconcerting about them at all. I humbly suggest that you should cut yourself some slack smile Your progress is fantastic and you should be very proud of it!

Way to go! I hope that you'll continue posting and I look forward to seeing your continued progress.

Warm Regards

Very encouraging words, thank you!

There are two songs in lesson 27 and both of them offer the opportunity to work on runs. I’m hoping to have lesson 27 done sometime next week and I think I will record Santa Lucia which is one of the songs.

God bless,
David

Here is a song from lesson 27 that I like. I don’t know most of the songs in this course but I remember hearing this one (Santa Lucia) growing up. No new arrangement techniques were taught in this lesson. It’s arranged based on what was taught in the past. I’ll play it first as written and then arranged. The piano sound is my new VSL CFX



God Bless,
David

I finished lesson 28. There are two songs covered in this lesson and no new arrangement techniques are introduced. Duane gives some ideas on how to arrange the song I recorded by mixing up chords and arpeggios.This lesson marks the advent of the key of G. The song I recorded coincidently happens to go along with the holiday weekend. The piano sound is the VSL CFX (Karvala Preset). I'll play it once through as written and then arranged.



God Bless,
David

Very nice! And as you point out - timely! I'm anticipating September Song in a few months . . .

America is a fun song to play. The tempo I selected is too fast for me to perform smooth runs at the end, but I like the tempo for the rest of the song.

Is "September Song" in the course? There are so many songs covered that many of them are a blur now in my mind.

God Bless,
David

Alas, I don't think "September Song" is in the course.
