Piano Update – One Week Later

So, its been about a week since I’ve had the piano. First song I tried to play, Colour My World by Chicago, I can get through it, but I screw it up to much. So on to the next – Free as a Bird by The Beatles. I recorded it, but I don’t think its 100% as good as it could be. Ive been playing around with some other songs, I figured out Blueberry Hill by Fats Domino on my own, been playing Hey Jude by the Beatles too. Im starting to relearn the chords again, which is cool. One thing I totally hate is that you can get music for songs, but it really isnt what they bands play. It has like vocals built into the piano tracks. I was watching A&E and there was a Paul McCartney special on – The Space Between Us – and it has him playing in concert. He plays For No One on the piano by himself. I look at the music, and it doesn’t match, because the sheet music tries to incorporate the vocals/melody in the higher octave. So I am playing that song too, but trying to do it from the music but play it like he did. Overall though its pretty fun. I can still play the Entertainer by Scott Joplin, and don’t forget Lady Madonna by the Beatles, and the one song I really need to perfect – Imagine by John Lennon. I can play the verses, but the chorus and bridge I’m screwing up on, its the same thing – the music doesn’t match what you would really play! So, I’ll just have to figure it out 🙂
