Thank you Monica. My secret is self-hypnosis that my mother taught me. It gets rid of the pain in the fingers and wrists after 10 hours of straight practice. Now I play 11 hours straight:) And no, I don't stop to eat. Should I get help?

Actually, I do like to play for hours (2-4), because it is therapeutic for me. If I'm not doing so well on a song. I play it slowly and correctly a few times and let the central nervous system process it for a day or two and then come back to it. If that doesn't work, then I bang my head against the wall and forget who I am for a half hour. That's a quick way to forget about your problems for a while.


I always wanted to pretend that I was an architect.

[wonders if she can pretend she didn't see this post.]

I'm stalled. I've been making good progress on God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen and struggling on Linus & Lucy, so I've been focusing my time and effort on GRYMG instead.

Got my copy a couple days ago (eight page). About 7 years ago I had downloaded a MIDI transposed score that made L&L sound even worse than Monster M&H's example. I had not played it since (because I was in school without a piano).

It's good to have a real score and my own piano. If I could only choose what I will practive every day. I get distracted by six or seven pieces, but I will try to push through the jazzy sections of the piece.

Good luck! R.

Linus and Lucy, what's that?

*Andrew hopes he can rationalize his excuse*

I've pretty much focused my attention on my recital piece. I just don't seem to make much progress on several pieces at once, so I haven't been practicing this one much lately either. I think I'll be more motivated the closer we get to Christmas.

If you were not sane, you would never misunderstand this question or the consequences of not comprehending its meaning.

Rico..."downloaded a MIDI transposed score that made L&L sound even worse than Monster M&H's example." HEY...lol I'll try to record an updated sample...

Shortcircuit85...I know what ya mean...I have just 2 pieces I'm working on right now - L&L being 1 - and I find it hard to devote time to the harder sections. I do have the first part down pretty good (at least in my own mind).

Okay, Monster...

I have completed Linus and Lucy. Yes, I mentioned that before, but this Group introduced me to try the song a little different from what I had already learned. That should count for something -- I hope -- for I had to de-program my hand and adjust to the more-efficient fingerings mentioned in this study (at least for me.)

Disclaimer: I know for a fact that I DO NOT SOUND AS GOOD AS VINCE, but do I win a little something? laugh

Oh, if I could record for you I wish I could. I have Cakewalk's Music Creator (USB) connected to my P-120, which I'm still trying to learn.

Congratulations, VibeRaider! That's impressive. You should be able to record pretty easily with your P120, so I hope you keep trying. I'd like to hear your version.

As for me, well, L&L is on the back burner where it's been the last two years. And where it will be for maybe the next two years. :p The progress I was making was just too darn slow, and I decided I'd rather spend my time practicing pieces I was actually getting somewhere with.

Where's a smiley waving a surrender flag when you need one?

Hmmmm. I don't have a teacher. I guess that means I could be off and not know it?

I was OFF way before I had a teach...

The right hand part I was slurring the AbC -the third/forth notes- rather than playing separate. I'll try to record -although I have to work on wife’s car and home chores- the two different ways. He also mentioned to really bring out the LH, to listen to a recording and pay attention to the bass and rhythm. Our regular lessons are Over the Rainbow and Blues/walking bass with improvising RH fills

At the request of Dean (dk21208), I'm posting up a recording that I made of Linus & Lucy from my podcast. I personally don't think it's anything special, but if it helps out anyone, then knock yourselves out with it.

You may not think it's special, Mario, but I have tried and failed to play that piece, so I beg to differ! Great job. thumb

Mario,

Thanks for the response. Personally, I always think it is a benefit to hear different interpretations of the same piece of music. You never know when inspiration is going to hit...

Very nice, Mario. I wish I could get it to that point. The main theme is relatively easy. It's that swing bit that's so difficult to master.
