I've set myself the silly task of learning the piano solo to butterflies and hurricanes. Rather impossible, but I think It's worth a shot.
This will commence in the month of July (May Be August, Depending On When I'm On Holiday), as I have As I have exams during May and June. I have all the sheet music for the solo, ready and printed off. I'll post updates every couple of days showing my progress, and no matter if its perfect or not, or the whole thing or not, I'll post a video of however much of it I can play at the end.
I have played piano before, but nothing major, as everything I have played is usually just songs I've learnt from youtube or whatever. A week ago, when I first got a keyboard I wouldnt have thought it possible, however I managed to learn the intro to Bliss by Muse (Contains Some Arpeggios where you have to cross hands) in about a day which restored my Hope. Ill be practicing with a few other peices until July (Maybe August) to hopefully improve my ability
Well Peace out for now, I may post some updates regarding this before july.
Thanks for being bothered to read all of this, and I hope you follow this.
So far July seems the best option as in August I'm going on holiday for 2 weeks, however July is plagued with little off dates, for example I'll be at a festival for 5 days. Im still going to go through with it, and for the moment, wont substitute the days I cant practice I'll probably just practice a bit more in the days before hand
Hey it's not as hard as it seems. Just start playing arpeggios slowly, slowly, (its necessary if you never played fast piano arpeggios before). Start with left hand (bass octave) then quickly play chord with right hand, and start moving your left hand over the right hand on first chord note. I hope you understand what I'm saying.
