That was not bad.... All you need is a little bit more practice.

Next stop "American Idol".

Do it again and sing louder, please! The more air you get goin', the easier it is to go with the flow.

Encore! Encore! Hehehe. Good job :)

Shit, after reading your writing at the start I was expecting a God awful mess, but that was pretty damn god! How long have you been playing?

I wanna learn the piano so I was going to buy a key board and work my way up. In your personal opinion, would this be a good way to start or would you recommend lessons?

SInce I bought a keyboard once with the same idea, I feel as though I'm an expert on how NOT to do it.


My expert advice: Get lessons.

Thanks :).

I'll sing louder next time. I also agree with Polar Bear: Get lessons. There's a lot that a good pianist can teach you that you'll never find in instruction books.

That actually wasn't bad at all, Dunamis. Piano is a lot harder than most people think. Your left and right hands are operating at differing intervals (especially in a song like that). Add in the vocalizing at the same time and it's definitely no easy feat. Good job.

It's seems as you should relax more in regards to the piano playing as well, since it sounded a bit static. It's a pretty fragile song so try to be more gentle. Still, much better than anything I could do, so I hope to hear more from your process of getting better =)

I really regret quitting the piano lessons when I was 10, what a silly boy I was.

dunamis,

you actually have quite a passable voice...and only seemed to falter when you missed up a little on the accompaniment.

ps. good work on the high note, hotshot.

as for your buddy nathan...

the piano sound was massively tinny (cause the camera was on it), but his voice is really nice.

I really see no difference between the two of you other than confidence and experience.

will you sign my boobies?
