We’ve been practicing these songs for around half a year before we had the concert. It was a bit weird for all of us at first, but we get along quite quickly and got to work ASAP to learn about Jazz and play some. I really enjoyed the time we had together
Went for a walk outside today, it was quite stormy. It improved my mood though and was quite relaxing. After getting home, I felt like playing – and here we are, with that cheesy weird title 😛
Listen to this again, there’s many things I’d have done different, like NOT playing the left-hand as loud as it is and some other minor stuff, but it’s listenable. This improvising is still a work in progress, so it doesn’t have the same quality as my normal uploads… yet.
On that note, don’t ask me when the next normal upload will be, maybe I’ll do one around the end of this month – WE. SHALL. SEE.
I’ve been meaning to upload a new video for a while, as well as an improv video. I try to improvise everyday on the piano, but rarely do I remember to record and even rarer is it for me to be happy enough with the recording to upload it on YouTube.
Well, today marks the day of the first piano improvisation that I’ve uploaded to YouTube, with more on the way 🙂
Oh yeah, brain-fart around 01:05… don’t ask me what I was thinking.
I’m sure that it isn’t too hard to guess what inspired me for this improv, so I hope you enjoy and are interested in seeing more 🙂
