grin Congrats !

Has Undone left already? Seems as though the current generation is leaving and a new one is arriving. I suppose Key Notes and I will be the only two left (from when I first found this forum)

Regardless, TTigg, congrats on finishing Book 2. There is only one thing greater than that: finishing 3 haha

Guys - I want to order book #2 from Amazon but I'm not sure I can find it here in the UK. Is this the right one?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Alfreds-Basic-Adult-Course-Lesson/dp/0882846345/ref=pd_cp_b_3


There's also this, which I think is right, but there are only second hand copies available:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Alfreds-Basic-Ad...2024&sr=8-1

Thanks,

Robin

The first is the "Basic" and the second is the "All-in-One". They both will work for this thread, some here use each. The basic has slightly less songs than the a-i-o but they both follow each other closely.

Thanks thumb I won't officially be there for another week or so (taking a mini break in-between). Also got to get my recording down of Canon in D which will be within the next 3-4days (promise)

I’m still here. I should be done with Canon in D in about a week or so, and then it will be on to book 3.

Hi Everyone.

I've been working on book 2 for a while now but I'm not half way through yet (Basic book 2). I'm working on "Night Song" right now and almost have it down. It's my favorite piece from the book so far.

Congrats to those moving on to #3. I hope to join you one day.

HeirborneGroupie,

Feel free to post in here more often. Include recordings of your works as well, that is, if you'd like. I will listen to them as will others and give feedback. It helps me

Here is my recording of Ballin' the Jack:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2sUboLFl2rY

This wasn't my finest performance, but was all I could do while the camera was actually recording. Let me know what you think.

Thanks,

Waltz – Great job on Ballin’ the Jack! This is another on of my favorites from Book 2, but whenever I hear it, I can’t stop thinking of Gilda Radner and Dom DeLuise performing it in the movie “Haunted Honeymoon”. Great stuff.

I agree. Great job Waltz!!!!. I don't think this song is in the Alfred Basic book. It sounds challenging.

Very, very well played. Seriously, great job smile

Your crescendos were excellent, you have certainly mastered that piece.

Thanks Undone smile

I liked it as well. At the beginning, I thought it was going to be easier to play than it actually was. It is a challenging thing to play, moderately hard (for me).

I also passed Nobody knows the trouble i've seen. It was absurdly easy, but it did introduce the LH Bb major chords. I don't think there is much of a reason to record it. It really was not challenging, at all.

I'm now on La Donna E Mobile.

Thanks Waltz. I really liked this piece.

Can't wait to hear "La Donna E Mobile" when you are finished with it. I'll be starting "Space Shuttle Blues".

My update... with our first public recital now in the rear view mirror, and with summer here (meaning I am taking a break from lessons), I am going to be focusing pretty exclusively on Alfred's Book 2 pieces over the next few months, trying to make some progress. Just started Solace (Joplin's Mexican Serenade), and after an hour or so, it doesn't seem too intimidating.

I would really like to be done with the book by the end of the year, but at this point, that seems a little ambitious. (Mark could do it, and apparently PianoNoobAlexMan did, but I am not sure I can...)

Thanks TTigg and HBG smile
I have not yet been able to "bring out" the melody in the piece. It's nice to be doing some staccato again wink

Well folks, I’m finished too. Last night I put the final wraps on “Canon in D”. I still have a few small issues with my recording, but enough is enough, it’s time to move on.

Earlier I wrote that I thought “Danny Boy” might be more challenging than “Canon in D”. Now I’d say that “Danny Boy” is more challenging to learn, but Canon is more challenging to “polish”. Maintaining the proper (or at least close to proper) dynamics and tempo throughout while not hitting any wrong notes was the hard part. I kept getting either good dynamics and tempo along with a clunker or two, or clean playing but poor dynamics/tempo. I finally settled on one that had a minimum of all three problems.

Tonight I’ll start on Book 3. But you don’t get rid of me that easily, I’ll still be poking my nose into the Book 2 thread (just as I still read the Book 1 thread), and will continue to post here up until the point where I feel like I’m intruding in “another groups” thread.
