I was so drunk when I played this!
I've not played piano in a while..
My head is kinda empty trying to remember the chords!
when I don't think they are there. When I think they are all gone!
anyway.. I thought.. i'll watch a youtube of some people playing it on piano, get some ideas of how I might want to play it.
This fella pops up.. It's really good..
but then at the end he goes ..
"The most important thing is to enjoy your playing, and if you have just 3 things.
you can be good at this too"
Actually I think it's F locrian! I often get confused with modes n stuff
First Movement of Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven, played by me. You can watch me on vimeo https://vimeo.com/495748500 or for audio only you can listen on soundcloud https://soundcloud.com/sheffieldkevin/beethoven-moonlight-sonata-1st-movement-272-acd?in=sheffieldkevin/sets/my-progress 4m40s #piano #beethoven #beethoven250thbirthday
Putting this here, because it's got some piano in it.
This is the 4th take I recorded of this melody and harmonisation.
I think of it as in the Locrian mode of Gflat, but really in Eflat minor I suppose.
I spent quite a long time thinking about the harmonies and melody.
It's also got a lyric.. not quite sure how it fits.. I try to think of feeling, and how I articulate that feeling, then use that for a melody and chords...
Anyway here you go
So how should we call/tag it? I suggest #PatchNotes (via FactMag)
I got a new synth - so here is the obligatory unboxing video. I'm playing on it using just the presets. It's Dm9/Gm9/Bflat
(It's a ASM hydrasynth, the patch is "Na'vi River", the arp is a preset on the Behringer Deepmind 12, the patch is "glass poly")
It's not meant to be anything deep or complicated. Just a first go at trying to use it musically, I've only had the thing a few hours.
Just wiggling my fingers on the keys
