Sombrero Sam (Piano Lesson)

The latest of my piano lesson pieces, but rather than use a piano sound, I split the keyboard into bass and electric piano (which I’m really enjoying the sound of at the moment even though its a bit “gritty”) and just went for it, along with the solo section.  Mistakes a’plenty but its being uploaded anyway.  I’m also learning a very trimmed down/basic version of Clair De Lune which I hope to record soon.  Whilst I know the piece, I’m not “familiar” with it, so Daria (piano teacher) played it to me at my last lesson.  Aside from the fantastic playing, it made me think how can anyone write that! Truly amazing and puts my usual throbs and squeaky electronic sounds firmly in their place.  I sometimes find it hard to strike a balance between listening to incredible music and taking it as inspiring, or making me want to quit as I can never be that good.  But onwards I shall go.

Learnt from ABRSM Jazz Piano Pieces Grade 3:

  1. Clair de lune is a classic tune. Good luck with it.

  2. Thanks! Yeah Clair de Lune is great, but i’m only doing a really basic one-page version. Stil sounds nice though!

  3. Not sure why, but really feel like drinking a long G&T whilst leaning against a grand piano, gazing lovingly into the eyes of the pianist.

  4. Its not the effect my synthasisationist warblings usually have on the masses, but I will take it in good spirits. You would have to bring a fine bottle of French red wine to complete the moment….
