I'm excited for NOP :-) - I'm still working through the Boogie Woogie Piano book. Gone through it once at the "jump-in with two-feet" level and then back several times to get it more solid. But I do find myself using the New Orleans bass lines the most.
For me the trickiest New Orleans bass line is the simplest one (1 2& 4). It's the one I find the hardest to really fit properly, especially with swing time. Interestingly, I find the New Orleans bass lines built on the simple one - easy to play, in fact I love to switching back and forth between those bass lines and the Yancey bass line to spice it up.
Anyway, excited for the new ... New Orleans Piano books/lessons.
Often the delicacy of the tool of the piano is discussed and enhanced for the customers. The staff of the piano repair services is good and available for the care of the piano. It is taken for the proper tuning and given back to the customer in perfect condition.
The PART I video has been uploaded and should be live tomorrow morning at 10am eastern time.
Thanks Michael! Great plan. When you post some questions about fingering could you please start a new thread here in the New Orleans piano section? ;-) That will make it easier for other students to find it.
Also just purchased New Orleans Piano. Good stuff!
The two-handed syncopated rhythms and octave work are just what I needed to work on. And I like that it focuses on that those dang [1 - - & - - 4 -] based left-hand bass lines that always give me trouble.
Notes: After I go through the book once, I'm gonna post some questions about overall fingering across different bass lines.
Hello. Purchased the new book (New Orleans) and it looks great However the links to youtube at the start of each chapter link to playlists with no content. Is it me, or is there a gremlin somewhere?
Hey, I'm excited for this, too. Love the boogie. Love New Orleans piano even more! I'm looking forward to it.
Thank you Michael! Yeah, sometimes the fewer the notes in the left hand, the harder it is to play! Keep up the good work and thank you for learning this music!
