Hello AndresD! Welcome to the group :-)


That's awesome Ajames, glad you like GH#2. There are some good material in it. Have you decided what song you're going to learn first? Never heard of the "Jazz, Rags, and Blues" #1 but will check it out shortly.

Alex, I'm working right now on the first one: "Show Business". I do like the arrangements much better than the first Greatest hits book. They seem only a little more challenging to play but sound much, much better to me.

"Jazz, Rags and Blues"-- If you like those styles, I can really recommend the first volume. The pieces are really fun and engaging. I'm finding some of the rhythms challenging to get right so I must be learning something too. smile

I've been on a bit of a tear lately, adding ~2 pieces a week to my practice. I'm still working on Tchaik. "Morning Prayer" and have been for several months. I like having a longer term project and lots of shorter term simpler pieces, I think it really helps with reading. Up to "Lonesome Road" in Alfred's, I have to say I've been enjoying the Alfred's pieces much more lately.

Ajames, how are you progressing with "Show Business" in the GH#2 book?

I finally got around to setting up a youtube channel so here my first attempt at recording. It's "Nadia's Theme" from Alfred's GH#1. The video isn't the greatest but seeing how it's a laptop cam it'll do & I'm starting to get the hang of the audio editing program.. http://youtu.be/a5VHdFa-vvI

Alex, Your "Nadia's theme" really sounds great! How do you get the strings track? You should post it to the Piano Bar thread.

"There's no Business like Show Business" is coming along, I'm just trying to bring it up to speed now. My teach pointed out where I was being a little sloppy with the rhythm so I'm using the metronome some.

Really enjoying the Mier book 1 "Jazz, blues, and rags" also, probably trying to do too many pieces at once. My work on Alfred's is in like 3rd or 4th place now, since I also have a Tchaikovsky piece "Morning Prayer" and a piece for the Schumann recital also. My problem is I enjoy starting new pieces too much...

Thanks & not a bad idea about the Piano Bar thread. Will look into that later over the weekend.

hehe.. I hear ya there! I've stepped back some to re-focus on AIO #2 lessons as I was getting carried away with other material. Not so much things I want to work on now but for later on as I progress. Ended up buying $80 of new music online last week which should arrive in a months time to add to my ever growing "to learn later" pile. When I told my wife she just looked at me and shook her head saying I got enough now to keep me busy for the next 10 years. lol
