Studio Joe - Very well played and professionally produced - I was kind of hoping that you would start singing at some point since your picture shows you with a microphone. Oh well, maybe next time.

Hi All,

I’ve enjoyed the November piano bar so far! All the submissions were excellent.

And, welcome back, Tatiana! I enjoyed listening to your latest submissions. I’m actually not a “two-timer” in regards to being in love with your lovely hands. Elssa has lovely hands too. Fact is, both of you have lovely hands and your music is just as lovely!!

I see your lovely hands and I hear your lovely music…. Sounds like a beautiful love song in the making!! grin

Best regards,

Rick

I couldn't play it too much faster, though, as my fingers would get all tangled up. laugh

TWO GUITARS (#2)

BTW, I do have a score I could send you if interested, but this is mostly my own arrangement.



Elssa,

Your second take is outstanding! I can picture gypsies dancing while you are playing... thumb

Yes, I would love to get your arrangement of the Two Guitars (not that I will be able to master it any time soon, but I will make an effort! smile ) Thank you so much for your kind offer.

Tatiana

Hey look, two entries in one month!

Of course, this is a video of an early recital piece I did here on the ABF. I had a video of this on youtube but with extremely low quality audio so I took the time today to make a new video.

It was also a chance to play a bit more with pianoteq 3.5 as I'm using the demo and this is one of the few pieces that I know that does not hit any of the 6 disabled notes.

Thanks for listening/watching...



Now, I know it might be a bit late for those who just did the recital but another reason I made this video was that I was going to work on a tutorial of sorts for working with audio/video. How I use a few tools to line up the audio from different sources. I can give instructions for linux based systems fairly easily but I'll have to do some work in windows to find a program and get instructions for that. I know all the commands from my shell prompt but adding a gui in windows will make things much harder. smile

Sounded awfully good, Anthony, and superbly played as well; now, I guess You'll have to buy the full version or find more songs that don't use the 6 notes in question. confused

I just started work on a new one that avoids the disabled notes. I went through all the sheet music I have and got down to about 12 pieces out of over 70 or so that avoid the disabled notes (three of the sharps/flats in the bass section are the problem.)

Out of those 12 I can already play two but they aren't really difficult pieces. A few of the 10 left I might have a chance at playing. Monica's latest recital piece is one of the 10 left but somehow I don't see that one in my near future. eek

Very nice Anthony. That is some good musicianship. Pianoteq sounds great, especially controled by your nimble fingers

angelo - thanks for making washing dishes tolerable. A hard task, but you were up to it. I love the upbeat parts. Really nice jazzy feel.

David Ruzicka, nice work on Bach's Prelude in E minor. Hope you post more of your music.

Sam Smith, I really like these harpsichord/recorder duets. They are so peaceful, serene. All is right with the world (for a few minutes, at least).

Martin, very nice. I was puzzled at first by the title, but it is indeed pensive! Well done.

Elssa, loved the Moon River. The cross handed thing was nifty! I think one of the keys to your success is that you integrate your right and left hands so smoothly, so that you can create a very full sound without needing any olympian acrobatic effort by either hand. If we only had the audio, we'd be thinking - geez, she must have ten fingers on her right hand. Well done!

Tatiana, both pieces were beautifully played. You have a very nice touch, nice expression. Well done!

Anthony, great job on the Einaudi piece. Very peaceful, calming. Also liked the video piece. Reminded me of The Piano.

Augustina, nice duet. Family fun at the piano can be such a wonderful experience. Well done to you both.

Joe, nice work on Blue Velvet. Brought back some memories!

Elssa, great work, and a nifty ending on the Two Guitars video.

Angelo, Greensleeves with rhythmic variations! Very interesting, dishes or no dishes!

Hey Rick! I have to "hand" it to you - you're going to start making these ladies so self-conscious about their hands that they're going to wear gloves to play for their videos, much to the detriment and chagrin of the rest of us...

TRUE BEGINNER - A nice contribution/composition. Apt title!

BILL - Cool vocal effects! Another victorious entry in your repertoire! Thanks for including the scat, too.

RICK - You will never wear out your welcome with a rock and roll! I really enjoyed your pensive work here... Just a suggestion here: When you release your Rock and Roll CD to the public, mabe make "Restoration" the last tune on it. It has a great feeling to it, and it would make the perfect last song on a rocking CD!

Thanks for the comments, John and Angelo!

And, in regards to my comments about the ladies lovely hands, the human hand is indeed a wonderful work of creation (or evolution, if that is what you believe), whether male or female. Just think about what all we can do with our hands…. the skills that can be accomplished with them.

Of course, some hands are better looking than others! grin

Keep up the good work everyone!

Rick

Nice one Augustina, and appropriate for the season. I've always loved that piece.

wow thumb great video and excellent playing!. I'd be seriously interested in learning how to get that type of angle / low light shot since I love the whole black & white feel (kind of like the keys)

Augustina, I love Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring. It has to be my favorite Bach piece. I can't play it for crap, but I love it. Thanks for this. Is that a string quartet voice? I usually HATE synthetic strings, but this seems pretty appropriate for the piece. Quite enjoyable.

Anthonyb Great job I enjoyed both your songs alot
angelojf: Was very enjoyable thank you
tatiana110: Both of your songs were pretty and you play well
Studio Joe: I also enjoyed this one a lot Blue Velvet and liked the way you recorded it, was good
TX-Dennis, thank you, I also love that song, and I messed around on my keyboard for a sound that would sound good with it, "Strings2 as they call it on the keyboard" is what I used? Playing Duets with my sister is a lot of fun. I just talked her into joining the forum actually, so she should be here soon:)
