Why, hello, pianists!

I'm a clarinetist and saxophonist who, to complement himself, took up guitar as his harmonic instrument. However, I've fell slightly disenchanted with it. On the other hand, I've been having more and more fun with the keyboards. I don't think I need to explain to you all the advantages the

That being said, I'd like you to recommend some pieces to play. And if it isn't too much to ask, would you kindly drop me a few lines of advice!

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum, Canoxa. \:\) You may also want to check out our Adult Beginners Forum; you'll find lots of comraderie and support there.

What kind of music are you interested in playing? Classical? Jazz? Pop/rock? New age?

Thank you for the welcome.

Silly me, totally overlooked the Adult Beginners Forum. Ah well, if any of the mods feel it should be moved, so be it.

In terms of style, everything will be fine. Even Country, the most usual pet peeve with music lovers, isn't a problem with me at all.

Well, I play new age music 99% of the time (not a safe admission to make in the pianist corner, which has a heavy classical slant ;\) ), so I can't recommend any country songs for you.

But you may find something useful in this thread I started I a while back in AB forum:

Easy David Nevue pieces for adult beginners

Ave maria - Bach prelude in C major
This is a beatiful piece and an easieast piece a beginner can play well at perfomer level.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHOTI2hgnsk&feature=related

The player made some mistakes here.
He played a little hard and a little too fast.
His fingering method is in-consistent.
You can play better than he if you have been playing this piece in Flute, or Clarinet with Gounod version. This helps you play the piece with emotion.

Nice aim. I've been mooching off some pianist friends of mine for sheet music (you know, just like I did here, teehee) and I already have that. I also have lying somewhere in my house a sheet for Gounod's version. Thank you for the suggestion, though.

Let's restrict this to classical and pop/rock, shall we?
