MOTIF + STRINGS – DAY 44

Day 44 of my ‘Year of Learning – YOL.’ A motif is coming in the key of D and I have – for the first time – experiemented with a string section below it. All improvised and done in one take. As I listen back I’m not happy with it. Some of the chord changes are nice but the middle of the piano section is very plonky and finding it’s way – as I seem to do when improvising just now but – rather than hide it in a drawer until it’s perfect – my way these days is to share where I’m up to. A diary entry if you will. To look back on when i’m better… I hope. I like some of the dynamics in the strings though and lifted the volume in the central section. First time I’ve played in a string underscore. My friend David said “I didn’t know where it was going,” to my last last piano post so have tried to have a gentle start – bigger middle and a finish. Feedback always welcomed.

I had been playing away in C with big flourishes but thought. Let’s try in D because it’s a little more involved to improvise to. After an hour of scales I imagined I was playing like Liberace (now there’s an image!) in C – maybe post some of that another time! I can always transpose on the synth and have it sound like I’m playing in G flat at 1,000 miles an hour! But that would be cheating. Although Jimmy Webb says when composing do it and I read that Irving Berln had a piano that he played in C but transposed the key he was playing in by having a mechanical changing mechamism. Hmmm…

Onwards to singing practise.

Hope you’re having a great day. What a privilege for me to be exploring this…Although your ears might not think so!
