I did this last night. It's an original dity. Nothing special, chord changes and root fifth in the left hand. Probably has been done before.

Great job! One question though, doesn't your pinky get tired? Looks like really uncomfortable style to use it.

Very nice! One suggestion. You might want to try raising the keyboard or lowering the chair a bit. Your wrists are falling a little bit, which can inhibit your playing (especially dexterity) and even cause carpel tunnel problems down the road. You're using much better technique when you play black keys. Have you noticed that those chords feel better to play? Try to raise your wrists a little when not playing black keys too.

No, my pinky does not get tired. Also, to answer another question about the height of the piano, thats the stand and thats the best I can do unless I buy an adjustable bench.
Thanks for all the great comments!! I thought nothing of these little things on the piano. It's alot easier to play compared to other things.
