Hmmm... I like Elton John's songs more than Cocker's, so my vote's on the dude with the sparkly clothes and glasses.

Love the piano riff in "Feeling Alright", or a version of "You can Leave Your Hat On" would be splendid in my books ...

Mmm... it's looks like I have two requests for the minuets!

I got another recording actually, of something a bit more lively that I also managed to play (much slower) on the acoustic piano. We'll see... I know you can't wait grin

I reckon Joe Cocker had one of the best backing bands in the business . . I`m sure I`ve heard his piano player on other artist`s stuff . . .

Cheryl - I'm afraid you're going to have to - my piece is not from that, but from that entertaining spectacle "The Lion King" and the pen of that entertaining spectacle Elton John (or "Johnny", as some would have it...)

Arrgg, all my agony last recital about tuning my piano - it's still not tuned and worse than before.

It's been a rough year, and I wanna do something to mark it. I just hope to find the motivation to finish and mark this year while finding the motivation to at least tune this piano.

As an adult beginner, it's sometimes easy to feel like a fish hauled up flopping on the deck - it's sometimes harder to take those tiny fins and take over the boat and go where you want to.

Hey, I don't mean to get crabby about your post, but whaling about puns is my forte.

Holy mackerel, I don't want to drum up treble, but these fish puns are seriously influencing my bass playing.

For the halibut, I'll scale back and not try to sound so crappie.

Just exactly how does one "play a bass" - does one beat it, pluck it or blow into it? And alive or dead? And how is this notated - on the bass clef? That's the bass clef and not the bass clef...

(Edited to add that I too was tempted to use some play on "bass", but considered it too much of a stretch, far too weak and desperate, and so didn't fall for it hook, line & sinker like some other "suckers" laugh )

Thank goodness there's still a few weeks to go! I tried recording the Chopin Raindrop Prelude last weekend, and on the playback, all I could hear was the THUNK, THUNK, THUNK of that repeated A flat in the left hand. Argh! Back to the drawing board, with some hints and exercises from my teacher. Hope to make some progress over the next week.

(BTW, I'm hoping if I ignore all the puns, they'll just quietly go away. laugh )

Didn't quite happen.

The melody is not rising as I would like and I still have a section that is quite weak in comparison to the rest. It tends to get very muddy, quickly.

It was revealing.

The good news is ... all my equipment is set up to keep trying through the week. This recording exercise is a very good discipline ... I wouldn't otherwise be nearly so fussy, and likely would moved on long ago.
