Description
This is a first-recording/first-draft/improvisation from this sunday.
Thinking on many friends that are still here (I mean, alive), but gone from our lives.

Should revisit it later and fix a couple of errors from this 'live' play but want to share it as it has touched me.
Sorry for the rough edges :)

Enjoyed it
another pretty melody. The only suggestion I have is that the song build more. I was expecting it to speed up as it went along. A change in emotion would be cool in this song. Just my 2 cents. Nice job

thanks
for the idea Charles. I guess a "celebration" part of it with a full orchestra (even a choir? :)) would really have that energy built into it. I'm trying it with some violins and it may be something to surely add. thanks again!

That may be cool
but I was more referring to the piano part getting a bit more complex with faster notes toward the end. Not necessarily "festive", it can still be in the same mode but with more angst.

Sweet.
Probably needs more variation in tempo or a second harmony woven around this one. Kind of sad. But very pretty. Thanks.

6 months...?
Wow...very impressive. This is somewhat reminiscent of a Beethoven sonata. Not an idle compliment. Just that feel and I'm particularly impressed with the way you separate the melody line from the accompaniment.
Nice tune.

wow! Thank you for your comment.
It's been quite an interesting 6 months period - specially the last month here at MJ. Learning a lot. Hope to be improving from composition to another.

Great composition
I like this moody piece. It just keeps me thinking about lot of things. This is a very good one-take effort. Look forward to your final version. Perhaps you would consider adding some strings to the second half of the song. Thanks for sharing / Mike

That's some sweet piano playing. You're building on a simple idea, developing it, so the listener keeps paying attention, but still keeping a fairly constant mood without disruptions or large changes. Very nice.

Sad
But a soft edged beauty. Almost has a hymn like quality.
Very nice,

Sweet...
I have been listening to most of your early songs and I have to say this is my favorite so far. A vast improvement on your performance and expressions. Sweet piano that touches my heart. Thanks for sharing! patty :)

really glad you enjoyed this. The curious thing about this song is that this is the original composition (recorded while composing, first/one take on the piano). And until now I still haven't been able to play it again with the same expression I feel was in this original recording - go figure! :)

first/one take on the piano
If you notice on my pieces thats the only way I compose. The moment is lost afterwards. Maybe that's why I love this piece, cause its from your heart as you play it from the heart-I don't know. I have noticed, that I cant recreate the original performance, emotion and mood when I try to structure it. I guess thats my limitation for not being formally trained piano.

I just keep on trying!
Take care,
patty

Never thought of making music. Until I started this year - triggered by one night of insomnia. It hasn't been 6 months yet so I have LOTS to learn - and this community is a great finding. My "wishlist": - improve my composing - improve the reco... [see more]
