      Tommo's Piano

      I'm gonna start recording some piano songs that I play.
      This is one. Coldplay - Postcards From Far Away
      The Camera is dodgy but oh well.
      It's slow because I like it like that

      How long have you been playing? Have you ever taken any private lessons?
      Keep practicing, it sounds good. Try and make your notes a little more elongated for these kinds of songs.

      Haha.

      Thanks no-name, yeah that's something I'm working on.
      I've had private lessons before, my grandma used to teach me. When I was very young. But then I stopped playing for a long time and only got back into it in the last few years.

      Damn these songs give me some strong good vibes. Incredibly soothing! And strangely enough, I'm getting flashbacks about my childhood.

      Keep it up man. Sounds fantastic.

      That's some smooth playing, there, tex. I agree with Motumz, I really get a "feel-good" vibe from these.

      Cool stuff! I always find that playing what you want to play on your own terms is so much better for learning instruments.

      Apologies if it's poor recording quality or a poor piano but I think you should focus on your pedal a bit. Currently the songs sound kind of disjointed and liberal use of pedal on pieces like that really brings them out and makes them sound so much more emotive and impressive.

      It's quite easy to get into, I think. I literally don't need to think about when or how to use the pedal any more, it's completely automatic. I'm not sure how long it takes to reach that level, but it wasn't very long and is definitely worth it.

      tommo, I'm in love with you XD.

      In all seriousness, I love how you play. It's an unbelievable feeling playing the piano don't you think? You're lucky you had private lessons

      Awwww, that makes me feel so good Espada. Thankyou!
      Yes it is unbelievable. Especially recently I've been improving and can play more songs without thinking much now. It's great.

      Xei - It really is poor recording, the sound is all off as well. But I'm actually working on the pedal recently. I agree, it comes pretty easily, I just never thought about using it before when it wasn't marked on the sheets. But I'm playing this song where I can't reach the keys so I have to use the pedal and I've started using it a bit more.

      Thanks to you too Spenner!
