    It was a long, longer and longest summer of not playing the piano at all. At the end of last winter I had made some nice progress with reading sheet music and playing a bit more complicated songs, something I was ofcourse super happy about. But take it a couple of months from there, doing nothing and hanging outside, and where are the piano skills? Yes, indeed bye bye and out the window!


    But it has been raining cats and dogs for a while now, and also I just really want to get back at it, so I started playing again. But rusty isn’t even the term to cover how terrible this all was going again. This was the rising of the piano skills from the grave but still looking like a zombie. The hands weren’t doing what they were supposed to, the brain wasn’t processing and sending signals to the hands, and especially the left hand looked more like I had a stroke than actually playing piano.

    As back in the days still, I was using the Simply Piano app to start it all up again, and honestly…I am still a big fan of this app. Starting from scratch again, making you play a lot of repetitions..This is just what I need.

    *PS…I used my new favorite bot chatGPT to have an opinion about this jingle…and it says that it is a relatively easy song… Screw you dude!

    "Jingle Bells" is a fun and upbeat song that is perfect for the holiday season. It is often played on the piano and has a catchy melody that is easy to sing along to. The song is usually accompanied by simple and repetitive chord progressions, making it a great song for beginner pianists to learn.

    In addition to being a popular holiday tune, "Jingle Bells" is also a great song for developing piano skills. The simple melody and repetitive chord progressions make it a good choice for beginners, while more advanced pianists can add in their own flourishes and improvisations to make the song their own.

    Whether you are a beginner or an advanced pianist, "Jingle Bells" is a fun and festive song to play on the piano during the holiday season. So why not dust off your piano and give it a try? You'll be spreading holiday cheer in no time!"

    But uhhh..I guess it is a good idea to start a bit more again, until the point where it actually sounds good again… A long way to go..
