Allard: I often play with cover in practice mode. For each phrase repeat for minutes is inviting complain. Always play with cover opened may damage to hearing.

Roughly anywhere from the 50s to the 70s F or 10C to 23c for all of you metric users. The highest temperature it got last summer was about 75F. Strangely enough, it felt really hot.. like 80s or 90s.. Really weird feeling.

I thought Winter was going to be dark and gloomy myself when I first moved up here. And the months of Nov and especially Dec, there are some days where you only see about 4 or 5 hrs of daylight. The thing is, when it is really clear up in Alaska during the winter time, the temperatures drop considerably.. Usually down below zero anywhere from 0F and below. The coldest it got this winter was -30F. There were a couple of weeks it was -20F. The past month has been pretty good temperatures. About 20F or so all of Feb. All of the sunny pictures you saw in the video.. it was insanely cold lol.

Just plain old Windows Movie maker.

Weiyan: That's a very nice arrangement. Very beautiful.
Inlanding: That sounds really good. A very pretty piece.
peterws: I always love listening to this piece. Well done.
SwissMS: That's nice blue piece. Good work on this one.
Elssa: Very nice work. It's sound very beautiful. Nice and smooth.

Lots of great stuff this month.

laydypayne - nice arrangement; beautiful scenery

weiyan - Love is Blue - good playing. I like this piece

Inlanding - Indaco - nice start on this piece; I like your improv too.

peterws - Jesu Joy of Man's Desiring - well played. Sure looked relaxed, maybe due to the overhead camera giving it an angel eye view.

Elssa - 'S Wonderful - this one really fits your style.

Peterws, great job on Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring. Elssa, don't know how you make your hands slide so effortlessly across the keyboard, but as usual terrific job on that jazz standard.

LadyPayne - your best yet I think
In landing - classy as ever
SwissM - That has a nice feel to it
PeterWS - I just love those old hymns I used to sing at school, which your piece reminds me of.

Weiyan - I like your slower tempo on this piece. Your piano has a cool, honky-tonk tone. I bet it would sound great busting out some Jerry Lee Lewis.

Hello David. Did I detect a trace of Pink Floyd amongst the Winter Romance? It really does sound like she`s moved on, and you`re a tad miffed, man . . . .

Both songs were well played on a lovely sounding instrument!

Inlanding - normally I'm not a big Einaudi fan but you bring an intimacy to this piece that is very appealing. I have pretty much liked everything you have posted here in the ABF. You have such a wonderful, warm style.

SwissMS - my favorite of yours so far. You have a good feel for this style - you let the tune breath and did not rush through it.

I was inspired by Elssa's submission last month of If I Loved You from Carousel to try a version of this great song. I figured I might as well add my other favorite song from the musical and do a medley of If I Loved You and You'll Never Walk Alone.

- Winter Romance - beautiful piece, poignant
- Czerny - I've mostly ignored Czerny, but this prompts me to look into his works.

BillM, two lovely pieces. I enjoyed "If I Loved You" all the more because of its inclusion last month. Smooth segue into "You'll Never Walk Alone", another classic.

David~ Those were two very nicely played pieces. Your original was wonderfully composted and your Czerny was fantastic. Great to see you at the bar again!

Bill~ That medley of two is simply fantastic. You continually create wonderful arrangements and express them so very well. You outdo yourself every month!

ladypayne: Your arrangement is very beautiful. I must say that I would enjoy it even more without accompanying instrument but like I said: Beautiful piece of music, very well played.

Weiyan: Nice piece of music. Well done. Also fun to watch your piano working smile

Inlanding: I'm not a big fan of Einaudi but this one got me. Very nice playing. Also your piano has a beautiful sound.

peterws: Exactly the type of music I love. And very well played I must say.

SwissMS: Nice, calm and very pleasant to listen piece of music. Good job!

Elssa: Wow, are you sure you're not professional pianist? smile It's very good, really.

BillM: Your performance is flawless and very emotional. I played it several times. Thumbs up.

David - Winter Romance is a lovely composition, sad and pensive at the same time. The Czerny was very well played as well.

BillM- I liked the medley very much. The transition from one to the next was seamless. You really put your heart into your singing.

I thought I'd give you poor folks a rest from my original tunes.

You know, I invariably end up posting a different song to the one I was intending. I struggle with something for a while and then turn to another song for relief. As I did with this one. (Though I will come back to what I was working on). I've always loved the song and the haunting nature of the melody and lyrics. I was also pleased to work out some piano chords as an alternative to the finger picked guitar part - but because the song was clearly so powerfully personal to John Lennon I felt like I was 'trespassing' and just kind of stopped where I was. But I figured I'd post it anyway (it's short).

Fine entertainment coming from the bar this month which I've come to expect.

Great Einaudi piece Glen. I'd never heard this before. It is very nice. Great job with it.

Noticeable improvement each time I hear you Weiyan. Nicer recordings these days too. Good job.

The joy is really well done Peter. Working on this one myself and we've been chatting about it in the Sonata analysis thread. I was thinking of you actually when I started with it and figured it would be right up your alley. Thanks for sharing it.

Fabulous singing Bill and Newman. It is always a nice treat to hear your singing performances. Both, very good and enjoyable listens.

ALL ... are SWonderful (fabulous tune) and I'm enjoying very much.

I've not had much to contribute of late. But always a keen follower. With that said though, I just received a new piano yesterday and of course, I'm busting to try it. It still needs tuning (noticeable) and that will be in two weeks.

My excuse for this one, is it is just a sound test. I didn't work much on the recording of it and a few rough areas. It's an easy Bossa not demanding perfection, so there isn't any. But, should suffice for getting a sense of the new machine.

So here is, and hope you enjoy:

Meditation

Newman - a fine rendition of this often overlooked song. As usual, you nailed the vocal. Your Lennon is outstanding.
