I enjoyed my own tinkering and reconditioning of the '80 Baldwin Hamilton Studio- and I was tempted to take others home afterward-but I have neither the space, nor does it center on my goal of becoming a better piano player-
I've gotten to the point where I'd rather play the piano than work on it... but we can also have a balance of enjoyment doing different things, whether playing the piano, or tinkering with the insides of a very complex machine. The best of both worlds, perhaps?
As far as becoming a better piano player, that is certainly high on my list of things I wish to achieve. And, I do believe that everytime we sit at the piano and play, we can improve our playing to an extent. If nothing else, just polishing what little I already know how to play.
Playing the piano is a lot of fun
Whether you have many or just one
The journey is usually greater than the destination
And I can say that for sure, without reservation
It sounds really good, and helps relieve stress
Cause sometimes my mind is tired and in a mess
But I enjoy my piano playing, and entertain myself
And sometimes I like to play for somebody else
But even if our piano playing ain't so good
If we keep up, in time, it may sound as it should
At least to our own ears, heart, soul and mind
Until a better hobby or pastime we find
As for me, I'll stick with piano for now
Although I play other instruments anyhow
I like to play boogie-woogie and blues
Or other musical styles that I choose
I like to write my own songs and arrangements too
They come in different styles, both old and new
I've probably said enough with these rhymes and such
And sometimes I think I just talk too much...
