The Giants chair. Placed secretly overnight on Dartmoor by an artist a few years ago. (it was about 5m high) Became a favourite peaceful place to visit but was sadly removed due to Parking/Health & Safety complaints etc. It was a beautiful thing whilst it lasted.
It's a long way from the streets of Aleppo to the streets of the West this Christmas.
A long way from the Lords of war to the Prince of Peace.
Kind of a continuation from yesterday, complete with Video, squeaky Piano Stool and (misty) view from the Piano
At the risk of spreading confusion, especially to those listening early in the day, today’s Piano Blog is on Guitar !
I’m now a week into this musical journey so thanks for all the listens, likes, shares, follows, clicks and comments.
I’d welcome any thoughts as to how I can improve things : the look of it, should I explain more about each piece?
could the pieces be longer? + any technical IT advice to make it run smoother, reach more people etc etc. I'm never sure if what you see is the same as me !
Thanks for the support so far.
Sad to hear this morning of the death of Greg Lake. I was never a big ELP fan (although I did see a crazy live gig once) but King Crimson's 'In the Court of the Crimson King' was one of the first albums I bought (1969). The short song quote in todays piece is a snippet of a song from that album. King Crimson's Drummer, Mike Giles, played on the second Nutshell album 'Flyaway' in 1976 ! Paul Field 9/12/16
The Piano Blog
I'm trying to play the Piano for a while most days. Just improvising whatever comes into my head.
Just to capture a moment.
All these pieces are unedited, one take and so mistakes are included !
