I started my journey in the music world with a piano. I got bored of it very quickly though, and found it took a while to get anything decent together. Having a basic knowledge formed on a piano has made learning guitar easier for me too, and it's made teaching easier too.
For me, it's other way around.
It really helps big time to a have basic knowledge when you start to play any instrument, yeah.
Having te right and left hands working independently is really difficult for me.
I think the piano is a really good way of understanding theory. Good luck Alwin !!!
Yeah, it's tough at first. I started to practice this and I came up with this exercize in E Lydian. So I play that very slowly all the time now. But that exercize in E Lydian has this really cool sound. So it's growing into a piece I'm writing now which is going to be called Glide
. It's really cool.
Anyway, I find this the hardest thing to learn up to this point. But I'll get it down.
It just takes a lot of time and practice.
Good on you! Don't let it distract you to much from the best instrument ever...
I'll tell you that I haven't been playing guitar as much as I used to, in quite a while now. I remember the other day I picked my Pacifica up and I was actually rusty. Which I haven't been in many years. I really had to get back into it a bit. I should try to prevent that from happening in the future.
But I'm having the greatest time with my Korg.
I've also been listening to classical pieces due to me having started to play piano. I've already discovered some amazing pieces like this one from Beethoven:
It's pretty amazing. Does anybody happen to have any recommendations, regarding some good piano music/pieces that are worth looking into?
