The first is really not my kind of thing, although I can certainly appreciate the effort that went into it. The second piece is, to me, much more satisfying. Nice, if somewhat unconventional, job!

John Frank - Great song choice nicely played. I like your slightly uptempo treatment of this piece. Well done.

I still do try to play just to try to keep the rust away as much as possible. Anyways, just wanted to drop by and post a quick song I managed to record today.

It's from the anime Bleach, and is entitled "Going Home." It was originally meant to be played on the guitar, but I found it sounds decent on the piano too lol! Anyways enjoy!

Going Home
It's good to see you back, z32. i don;t know this piece, but it's really quite nice. Great job.

Nice job, again, JonhFrank. I think Bennett is still in great voice today at eighty or so. I have several of his more recent recordings, and they continue to be quite satisfying. In particular, I have really enjoyed his duets with kd lang. Their voices just fit together perfectly.

Hi Yang,
Nice to see you again. Glad you still manage to play some, despite school. (How do you like college - UCBerkeley, is it?)

Phil,
Geez, you're amazing. I also watched "Dream about you" on YouTube - you sing too! Wow!

I hope you get "discovered". May be you should audition on "America's Got Talent!"

I am very curious what your musical background is. If you care to, you can post in Tell us About yourself Thread .

Phillip, I am amazed at your talent. If you should decide to pursue a career in music, I'm certain that you will achieve great things. This is a beautiful piece. thumb

Really enjoying this month's bar.. keep it up


Van...can't tell you how much i liked that...ok, i just did

Bill...I hate you (but only because of Vincent).. It's as easy as eating a bowl of soup for you..

Riddler...
You nailed it.. and it's longer then my normal three minute trheshold...and i had to loop on it whilst mio vino fine
now i have to learn that one too.... dammit mannn

Elssa..
You fly like a butterfly......
That is granmama's fav tune..and one of my fav movies..brava

z32.. so sublime... and polished.. perfection..


JF...The Polovetsian Dances.. that's an unbelievable melody and my brother was over, in time to hear it from my humble studio and was so happy I learned that one and I had to admit it was you. Dam, cant get a break.. he wasn't impressed with my bennie and the jets either..

PianoN00b... That was really inspired.. liked the mirror trick..

Phil Mills.. I liked your setup and true that.. the best songs just appear from nowhere... well maybe that came from somewhere..that is really beautiful..


-cheers!!!

Hey Gaffster,
cool tunes, as usual. I like the 2nd piece most, may be because it's "primitive"!

I have been just dabbling the last several months, without seriously applying myself or polishing anything, so I have little to show for. I have missed listening to several months of piano bar too. I will be without a piano, while away from home, for Xmas too. As I mentioned in a different thread, my new year resolution is to un-rust the finger joints.

Hey everyone. Just wrote a new song! Still workin' on a title but I just watched the saddest Smallville episode EVER and wrote a soundtrack to the sad parts and made a little movie of it :p I'll post it up here when I finish up the video editing tomorrow.

Gaffster, your version of Linus and Lucy (if we can call a total improv a version) is really quite nice. I enjoyed that. The other two are not my cup of tea as we say. Probably more a reflection of my musical shortcomings than any fault of yours, though. laugh

Schubert - Impromptu Op. 90 No. 4

http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?ohwqe24im1o

This is one of a few pieces that I've been improving and keeping up all the time since I started learning piano (14 months ago + I had keyboard/synthesizer lessons as a kid).

Overall I'm quite happy with it, but maybe you can hear I sort of overplayed this piece. laugh
I can't make some of those fast phrases sound the way I want it to. It's either my technique or my digital piano (Roland HP-201) that is holding me back at this speed.

Some little mistakes and one big one.

babama, that is, in my opinion, a beautiful performance. Your little mistakes are unnoticeable unless one is following along with the score. At least I couldn't hear them. Wonderful job!
