    Nearly a year has passed since I started playing the piano. Some weeks I play more than others, one thing is for sure… I didn’t do much when the weather was warm and it was outdoors time. But now the nights are long again and it is time to get this baby rolling again. It was time for a new video on the progress.


    This ‘Against all odds’ song from Phil Collins is actually a nice song to see what the chord playing is all about again. I use the ‘Simply Piano’ app to learn more about songs, learn how to play sheet music and also what types of different chords there are.

    After working through Jazz chords (where I learned about making for instance from an E# to an E#7 chord) and the Slash chords (where I could for instance make and E/D chord, while making the left hand play a different key which is out of the tone for the chord) I now also started dipping in the Arpeggios. Remember, everything of this is new to me and up until this year I had never heard of all of this.

    Making a video of what you are doing is actually just a really good thing to do to improve your skills and be a little bit critical of yourself. So in the video for instance I notice that my hand placing with finger 4 and 5 is just not really as it should be. That is finger 4 is often doing the same as finger 5, and these are the things technique wise that normally a teacher would correct you on. (I also noticed I do the same when typing on a computer, also self trained...pattern? I guess so)

    Here you can see what I see while learning what to play with this app. It looks as if these chords pass by slow but reality is that to me this is already quite fast haha. On the side of this chord playing I also started with the ‘Mineut in G’ from Bach and here I really notice how bad my left and right hand are working together. This will need some daily practices for sure to get that covered going. But winter is long...I will get there

    So I was inspired by @mipiano and @edje to start putting back online some music again. Even though it is literally nothing compared to what they are making (@mipiano skills I could only dream of...for real) it is called ‘Piano Progress’ for a reason. The ‘Spread the vibes’ challenge is to make people interact more about music which is cool in general. I am missing some elements of the rules which are there but the idea is good, getting the topic trending again as you can see in this initial post from waaaaaay back I would love to see some work from @bengy as he is the full time musician here, or and @artemislives since she really wants to get back on playing the piano again. Maybe this helps hahaha.
