I can hear that you have quite a bit of musical ability. I think you can take a lot of harshness out of your playing by not "pounding" the beat. (For example, at the beginning, I can hear every octave change in your left hand much louder than anything else you're playing.) I would also bring out the melody notes much more. (You do a much better job of this at 1:10 than at the beginning.) But good effort, overall. smile

No criticism from me constructive or otherwise, but most enjoyable to hear you play

I liked it, very good.
After listening to this a few times it sounds like you played a few wrong notes.
It is very good but maybe even better if you played all the right notes.

Dont give up, I didn't even start 2 years ago, without any proper musical training until then or now, it's all about dedication! smile

Honestly I think it's more impressive if you can do this by ear, I could never do that!

Really?

It's just the way I started, I always figured more people tend to be unable to read nowadays as opposed to in the past... I am quite a beginner when it comes to sheets (just starting "Bach/Gounod - Ave Maria" specifically in C Maj) although I have yet to ever record anything I am definitely tempted to give it a shot sometime smile

I think playing without sheets teaches you a lot more if you study by yourself than playing with sheets and honestly reading sheets is the simplest act in the world (note, i really just mean reading, not sight-reading while playing).

Simplest act in the world? perhaps once you learn the fundamentals of how it works.... memorizing each notes position has taken me a while but I'll get there eventually.

There is quite a lot of information on some of those pages wink as you say following the notes/music generally reading is not so bad, sight reading however.... well that could be a fair way off yet!

Ofcourse, I should have said reading notes not sheet music, since the difficulty varies greatly depending on the piece wink
