Nice playing, sislermi. Welcome and thanks for sharing this. I look forward to hearing more from you.

As you are new, and if you (or anyone else,) have not checked it out already ... please check out the upcoming Mendelssohn themed recital; Themed recital - the BIG ONE

There are still some spots left and the recital will not open until sometime in March (TBD,) so, there is still plenty of time left for preparation. If you feel up to it, I encourage you to take a look and let Wayne know of your selection.

Starr Keys, I'm so sorry to hear about your mother. My thoughts are with you.

Thanks, Kenjazz, Amaruk and TX Dennis. That little Aristocat Scales and Arps is one of my favorite pieces to play. It's fun and I also didn't know it was from a Disney movie.

Amaruk: Thanks for showing me how to get my video cover on PW. If you hadn't told me, I'd never figure it out. Next time I post a video, you'll see how well I learned from you. Your Chopin prelude was lovely and I especially enjoyed your presentation with the ballet over lay. Do you need some kind of special software to create the video overlays?

Greener: Your Beethoven minuet brought back lots of fond memories. That's always been one of my favorite pieces.

Sisler: You have an expressive touch. I'd never heard of both these pieces but I especially loved Hercules. I didn't know it was a Disney movie, either. To Zanarkand was beautiful, too. It had a distant feel to it, like something from outer space, which is what I suppose it is about.

Nice playing peterws. Really smooth on the rhythmic changes.

I gather from the youtube description that this is your own arrangement. Great work.

Here's a song I wrote in 2005 (on guitar) and have now worked out a - very basic - piano part for it. Listening back to it before I uploaded it it occurred to me to suggest listening to it and imagining some Lionel Ritchie type orchestration/arrangement to go with it.



You and Me (Newman)


I've been looking back over a few of my old songs this week and thinking about which ones I can convert to piano pieces. So, expect to hear a few more in the next little while.

Peterws7: Loved your piece. Had a real nice beat and you have a lovely touch. And it's a very fitting piece for this time of year. You could have been playing about my city - WINTERpeg! We're the Iceberg City, for sure!

Elssa: Was that you playing Near You? What a lovely, sentimental piece!

Newman: You have a great voice and the song was beautiful. Loved the lyrics, too.

Thanks, everyone. This piano bar is lots of fun to be in.

Thanks, Stumbler. smile I had played this originally with more strings as sort of a ballad, then thought I'd try this bouncier version that I posted here. My friend said "I saw you playing in an old western saloon while you were playing this", I guess because of all the tremolos I threw in for fun. LOL This is one of those great old songs you can play any old way, though, I think. smile

Enjoying everybody's great recordings here in the bar this month. thumb

PeterWS and Elssa - very different styles but a commonality of fluidity.

Newmn-"imagining some Lionel Ritchie type orchestration/arrangement to go with it."

And the dancing girls. Don`t forget them.

Elsa - My uncle played this sort o` thing. Many moons ago. In local pubs when piano players were appreciated!

Greener - a very polished and stately rendition of Minuet in G. I like your straight-forward interpretation.

Amaruk - I was surprised to see/hear you playing a classical piece. A sensitive and lyrical performance. I love the tone of your Roland - do I detect a light reverb effect? It sounds full and rich.

I originally intended this for last month's piano bar. Miss Drummond of Logiealmond's Strathspey from the William Shepherd's 1st collection. I abused the original in this arrangement. I picture giants stomping through the hills of Scotland stepping on houses. People running screaming.

Perhaps my imagination has is a bit overactive.

Starr Keys: Your singing is so beautiful and inspiring.. It's amazing how you can also accompany yourself .. not many who can do that so very well. smile

Stumbler: Terrific - enjoyed that! thumb

Candlelight Piano (Scales & Arpeggios): You played one of my all-time favorite Disney songs (from the AristoCats).. Purrfect rendition! smile

Here is a song that was recorded by Mary Hopkins in 1968. I always have liked the somewhat melancholy lyrics.

Those Were the Days

BillM: When I saw "Those Were The Days" I thought you were going to sing the theme from "All In The Family", and was wondering just how you would sing Edith's part of the duet. laugh A very nice song indeed you recorded there.

Thanks, Peterws and Ellsa. Glad you liked my little Disney piece. Ellsa, love your play on words.

Stumbler: You have an imagination! I didn't picture giants stomping through the hills of Scotland stepping on houses, people running screaming! I had a vision of men in kilts marching through the heather through the mists of Scotland, like a scene out of Brigadoon. Lovely.

BillM: Those Were The Days is one of my favorite songs. In some parts, you have a very ghostly treble accompaniment, it goes very well with the mood of the song and the lyrics and I felt utterly melancholic listening to your singing of this timeless, nostalgic song.
