Excellent performance with “Sorrow”, TB! I enjoyed it much!

I always enjoy your playing, David!

Great playing, Pedies! Nice piano too! I’m in the market for a cheap 7+ footer (although I haven’t found one yet! grin)

Bill, I’ll bet you practice 24/7! You are good!

Studio Joe, your recordings are first rate!

Riddler, I loved your piece!

Ben, I enjoyed your piece! I wish I could read that well!

Take care all, and keep up the great music!

Here is a poem I wrote for you all! grin

Music is more than a universal language
It is a joy and a gift to help us manage
It helps relieve stress and sadness
It keeps us from the ravages of madness
I like to sing and I like to play
It calms my nerves and makes my day
Music is a blessing from above
It is like a gift of life or love
Keep it up, my ABF friends!
I hope to listen to you all again! thumb

Take care!

Rick

Joe,
That was fantastic! You always come up with some great music. Very well done, indeed.

Rick,
These lyrics and accompaniment just come naturally to you? What great creative talent.

Ed,
I like your idea of using a back-track. You did this very well. You are a versatile player - lots of different skills you have!

Ben,
You keep great time and your hands are still, keeping your fingers at the ready. It is great to watch you play - good technique!

BenPiano,

Loved your Bach piece. Very musically played which makes it very enjoyable to hear and watch.

By the way, I have the Roland model before yours came out, the Phantom X8 and I love it. The piano sound is amazing. Even though I finally have a real piano, I go back to the roland to play a lot.

Hahaha...loved it! Nice! This song brought back childhood memories of the Muppets.

What a great start to March!

TB-lovely piece!

Rickster-a big BRAVO! Your playing is always heartfelt. "Happily Ever After", love the lyrics - you really should put out a CD.

David-great playing! I especially liked the "Karel Svoboda", very lyrical.

Pedies-Wow! Amazing playing, I love this piece BTW, and nice piano, too!

B52-LOVED IT!! This piece just made my day - the whole thing, playing, singing and great lyrics! ha

Riddler- Very cool cool ! As for your title - sparkling wine or real ducks? I could see ducks walkin' around to this. (I'm a little partial being a U of O "duck") laugh

Ben-REALLY great on the Bach!

Studio Joe- Man, haven't heard this for quite a while, nice job! Who can't love Blue Velvet?!

I always listen to the piano bar entries - just found myself with the time to let everyone know how terrific they are! Keep it up!

thanks! I like the G8, but the piano patches aren't so good on it. I figured they made them bad on purpose so that the user would have to go out and buy the expansion (ARX for the G's). Alas, they don't even have one.

Oh well, I'll be getting a real piano sooner or later, and keep the Fantom around like you did (for nighttime practice). grin

ah so I Finally can record videos on my phone, thought I'd try it out, anyways here is The Battle excerpts from one of my favorite movies Gladiator. I know I need to move the camera over a bit more, but like I said it was just a test to see how my video recording worked on my phone and uploading worked:)

Here's one submission from me this month. I'm trying to do another piece too but I havent had anytime to play it:(

Oh, YT's not that bad. I think you could handle it! smile

This was really cool. I was listening, and thinking, "this is a lulliby?" It's has a sort of haunting feel to it, but sweetly haunting, if that's a good description.

Then read a little about the movie, so now I can understand it a little better.

Thanks for sharing!

I've seen Pan's Labyrinth once and it is quite an odd movie. Most definitely haunting! I'm not really sure how I felt about it, it was pretty bizarre but it was certainly very interesting and kept my attention throughout, so I suppose that's a good thing. wink

Great playing ladypayne. I agree, you should be on YouTube! You'll get a lot more exposure that way and most of the people searching for piano videos are quite friendly and are just happy to hear other people making music, and most of them also play. smile

Edit:
Just another quick entry here, have been working on this the last couple of days and finally got my fingers to cooperate long enough to make a recording:

BenPiano,
I always like Bach's Minuets, they sounds joyful and reflects childhood memory. And I think you played it well.

Agustina,
The video/audio is really good for a phone record. The organ sound fits well for this kind of tune, I like it.

Ladypayne,
The lullaby definitely sounds haunting, almost lamenting. It gave me chills.

AnotherSchmoe,
I heard several FF pieces but I really really love this one. I listened to it several times. It is very soothing and it has a sense of optimism and your playing is excellent and expressed it well. Off to find the music sheet now...

TB

I've still only beaten FF7 and FF10. I first played FF7 probably 7-8 years ago but I never completed it, got stuck on the very last boss of all places (characters were too weak to beat him). Last year though I had to send my Xbox 360 out for repairs (it was gone for almost a month) and while it was gone I dusted the ol' Playstation off and played it again from start to finish and actually beat it. Great game! I had a similar situation with FF8, stuck on the last boss years ago. I still haven't gone back to that one though.

I also have FF1, FF2, FF4, Chrono Trigger, and Chrono Cross. Got stuck on the last boss in Chrono Trigger (need to replay that one some day too), but I beat Chrono Cross 3 times back in the early 2000's (wonderful game, loads of great music too). I haven't played FF1, FF2, or FF4 much yet though. Some day, perhaps. smile

Edit:
Another recording that I forgot to post... I actually recorded this about a day or two before the "Ahead On Our Way" one.
Chrono Cross - The Girl Who Stole The Stars

Just more video game music nostalgia from my early-teen days. grin

Also, I know in a lot of these I just play the piece twice, but I feel that a lot of these video game OST arrangements are a bit on the short side (often only coming it at around 80-90 seconds), and so I like to play them twice. Makes them last longer for when I'm listening to them in the background while surfing the web etc. In the games which they're from they often just played on loop in certain areas / during certain conversations and so forth. All of my recordings are one performance from beginning to end though, so I'm literally playing it twice in one sitting, not copying+pasting the second half. On the bright side, it's proven to be good practice for controlling my nerves while recording, it's a bit more stressful for me trying to make it through twice without too many mistakes so I have to try and stay focused a bit more and remain relaxed, fortunately the more I do it the easier it gets.

This is the last song for the month for me since I'll be going on vacation on Monday^_^

I finally got through this whole song with only messing up a few times ^_^, its not good enough for a video at the moment because I'm still practicing it, but here is what I have so far:) Oh there is a part at the end of the song where I am suppose to play it an Octave higher.. but my little keyboard doesn't have that many keys lol
I recorded this again with my phone because I think the audio sounds a little better then my poor camera...

Excellent Job al-mahed. I agree that it is beautiful, but it doesn't sound very easy (at least to me). It is especially impressive given that you have only been playing since July 2009.

I'm really enjoying all these great renditions here in the bar. smile Bill, I used to play that Muppet theme on the organ - just love what you did with it - so creative and fun to listen to. thumb

Well, I have to credit my cat, Gwen, for the ending with this one: grin
