Welcome to week 43 of 2016. We have less than 10 weeks left in the year! How about that!? I feel like it has been a while since I've done a piano improv video, and looking back, it has been a little over two months...wow!
For this one, I was toying with a key I haven't really worked with much before. Generally if I'm using all the black keys, my hands tend to go for C and F as the white keys, but today I purposely pushed myself to use B and E as the white keys. What a different mood. I like it.
I set a minor and a major theme back and forth for this one. I'm really starting to find that music works best for me when I don't try to go too many places. When it comes down to it, this is really just two relative key centers alternating back and forth a couple times. But it really works and I'd probably be okay hearing back and forth several more times if the range and arrangement where to change (maybe even if not). I'll have to keep that in mind.
Hope you enjoy this little improvisation.
Thanks for listening and see you next week!
