Sorry for the delay. Work has been full-on. Overtime to the max. Pretty exhausted TBH. I'll be right though :-)
Wow big thanks for the video foxy.
Stop kidding yourself. That is in no way shape or form is a beginner on that video. We are our worst judge as they say. I know I do the same. Beautiful I could feel you enjoy that piano a lot 😁👌
Thanks so much Mareg! Glad you enjoyed it. :-)
I'm definitely a beginner when it comes to actually reading music. I'll get my wife to tape a video and show the difference.
Today I officially started Alfred's Adult All-In-One piano course. So far so good. I'm getting through my fear of reading music!
That video is great! It is exactly what I was hoping for. By "external recording," I just meant a recording of the piano as it sounds through its speakers... not through its line-out. I get that many people prefer the line-out sound, but I'm amazed that so many piano dealers online *only* display that sound in their demos. Seeing as the speaker system is one of the main selling points of the CLP 785, refusing to capture how good that is feels like trying to sell a graphics card and then playing an 8-bit, retro arcade game on it! (Not a perfect analogy, but hopefully good enough)
Incidentally, this is exactly what happened in an otherwise great new demo
of the clp 785 by Riverton Piano Company. Notice that it sounds exactly the same as their video
of the CLP 745.
You sell yourself short. We all have a lot to learn, but I enjoyed listening to you play! Looking at the YouTube comments, it seems others agree.
If you decide to do another video, it would be cool to hear the Bosendorfer sound in a song. However, I'm actually completely satisfied by the video you already posted! I've been looking forward to hearing the CLP 785 in a decent recording and you provided it. Thanks so much!
Hope you have a great rest of the weekend.
Thanks mate! Happy to please the crowd here on PW! hahaha. I can tell you that to the 'ear' it sounds delightful. It doesn't sound muddy, it has such subtle nuances that feel just like a piano. Remembering that all my past 30+ years has been on a dodgy upright. So seriously, I think anything is going to be better. hahaha.
My playing is 'ok', but I've said before. I've hit a plateau and that's where I've been for YEARS. I keep going back to the stuff I remember. It's fun, but I simply want to expand my knowledge and playing further.
I'll doe a Bosendorfer recording on Sunday for you!
Glad you enjoyed the video, my friend. With the volume set at 90% OMG - it's LOUD, but not distorted at all. It's still crisp. Once you get some velocity going in your fingers the piano really does errr. liven up!!! It's delightful to play.
The one thing, not a major complaint is that you always (when you open or close it ), have to push the music rest and the end of the piano up and down. I wonder how long those hinges, screws will last before becoming loose? Not sure my friend.
Beginner? Whew! Nice playing, nice stuff. What was it, if you don't mind me asking. Sounded modern, cool. Oh, and the piano wasn't bad either . . . .
Thanks Peter! What was I playing? The first one was just a mixture of chords, but the closest thing, is 'Let it Be' by the Beatles. The 2nd and 3rd one. I simply made up on the spot. Moving up and down the scales. Always kind of random. Is fun, plus i learn't many years ago. It's ok to make mistakes. I learn from them, and try not to do them again! hahaha.
Foxy, thanks for sharing the video! Wonderful playing, a great start to the journey!
Thanks!!! :-) I'm having SOOO much fun! I had a day off work today and I've spent a good two to three hours learning, playing, experimenting and learning how to read music. It's tough, but hey, this is journey will be YEARS in the making.
I really should do one of those, 'One year in piano journey' videos. Lol. At least at a minimum record what I can and can't do now.
Take care everyone and thanks for reading!
