Would be cool to see ehhr... what is it called... BWV 578 (???) - "Little" fugue in G minor.

It might not be a beginners style lesson though.

QUOTE (Gus @ Mar 26 2010, 04:45 PM) *
Well, i just got started on a new band. We can not afford having a dedicated keyboard player, so I decided to learn some of it and guess what? Your lessons are here to save the day biggrin.gif I already went through most of it and I am practicing the exercises every day.

I think what I really would like to see on a lesson now is how to properly play chords formed from different scales (other than the C major scale).
I know tons of chords by heart in guitar and know how they are formed. So it would be quite easy to go on the keyboard and just play them "my way", selecting the proper notes. But probably there are right ways of doing the fingering, right?

Also, I see some piano pieces where chords are spread over both bass and treble clefs (2 notes each). So probably, there are different ways of playing them...
I hope you plan a lesson covering that topic soon tongue.gif


Hello! Really useful lesson idea! Yes, I'll go over that chords lesson really soon so I hope it will help you on working for the band ... thanks!

So, if I well understood, you're asking to know how to play chords over, for example, D major scale, F minor scale, F#m scale and so on ... using the right fingering. Also, how to use "open chords" spread over both hands ... please confirm this so I can go for the right lesson! wink.gif

Something in the blues - boogie woogie style would be great for me wink.gif

It is not exactly my style... anyway, to warm up and sometime to enjoy, I love to play Scott Joplin's Ragtimes, that is really great stuff! If you like that, we can do that! But thinking more... yes I've also some Boogie Woogie chops.. let's do it, you booked it! wink.gif
By the way, another great and useful suggestion! Thanks!

QUOTE (OzRob @ Feb 26 2010, 02:21 AM) *
Wow! Maestro, I want to say thank you so much!

I bought my first keyboard yesterday to start learning and doing more creative things to fill out songs and create tracks and harmonies
for my guitar playing. I know nearly nothing about keyboard playing, so started scouring the internet last night looking for beginner lessons
and information.

By coincidence, I just saw this thread and had a look. Exactly what I need!

I have bookmarked your lessons and will be starting from the very beginning.

Thank you!

Hello! Thanks for appreciating my keyboard lessons! I'm glad to help you on improving your skills.

You can also add on this topic some "lesson wish", something you'd like to learn and you didn't find yet among my published lessons.

Since I've been playing the piano for some years, I'm not that interested in song lessons (personally, which doesn't mean I don't have respect for your work smile.gif), but more in the things I don't know yet, yeah, like making backing tracks or improvising smile.gif

Hello, yes I understand... that kind of lessons you are mentioning are in my plans, in fact in the new lesson categories list, that I've posted opening this topic, there are "computer music" and "improvisation" as well. For "computer music" I meant not just technical stuff (plugins, use of eq/comp, mixing, etc.) but how to use sequencer to make our music and, especially, how to use keyboards/computer to make and arrange the backing tracks, a really common way to practice among guitar players. So, we'll discover step-by-step how to make a backing track for your practice uses, how to play and record chords on keyboard, how to add tracks/instruments and make the arrangement, finally mix and get our final backing track ready to play! ;-) Thanks for your request!

QUOTE (NoSkill @ Feb 12 2010, 01:10 AM) *
Thanks, Mistheria. I really find it to be a beautiful song. I wish I could find a better full piano arrangement for you so you could see. I think I read that it was in a song book for Catholic masses, but I don't know which one.

Cheers, and thank you!

Tom

Hello, no problem about finding a better version... that's my job to make a nice version of that song! ;-) So, for me has been important your suggestion and request. Also, thanks for letting me discover a nice song...

I'd love to see a level 3 or 4 arrangement of "Cry of the Poor." This isn't a good representation, but I think you may have heard the song.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0XhcrTAXd0o I know you're getting flooded with requests, but this is my wish.

Hi! This song is really nice and I didnt know about it before, so thanks twice! ;-)
I'll make a piano arrangement, that level you asked (maybe 3 it is enough...) is good. I'm going to learn "Cry of the Poor" as well to prepare the lesson...:-)

I can play the intro. on my guitar but it doesn't beat the keyboards by any means.
Your consideration is appreciated... smile.gif

This is a standard that we can absolutely learn! The legendary intro and the main organ accompaniment will be part of one of the next lessons. Thanks for the suggestion!

QUOTE (Wabba @ Feb 11 2010, 09:26 PM) *


I like this one, It's a hard one too smile.gif Maybe a guitar lesson from it also.

Yes, it is great instrumental but a little bit too high level to make a lesson about it, for now... but, I'll keep it in the list, maybe we can analyze as the guitar and keyboards play along...
Thanks! Any suggestion is appreciated because, anyway, can give the idea for something similar... ;-)

Hi Andrew! Great suggestion too! We can explore that hammond techniques that make the hammond sound really something so special! We'll discover that kind of "growly glissando" and more... excellent idea! Definitely in the list... ;-) Thanks!

Hello Russell and welcome to GMC! Though I'm not a guitar player and it's not the style that I play, your playing is absolutely great and I always enjoy so much listening for guitar country performances, especially when great as yours!

Though you don't have to put this on the "wish list", I've always liked this song:


Yes, it is a nice piano part in the late Baroque/Romanticism dramatic style.. I'll try to keep this as idea and develop a small part where some of that playing/impro elements are involved.. thanks!

Maestro, how about this one from Stratovarius? We can try to do the lesson together. We would not be able to leave the tab due to copyrights but we can talk in the lesson and explain note by note. Check how other guys do cover lessons. We can do just this first part up to 1:30.


Hi bro, yes sounds great! We can make this lesson real! The jump from the "beginner piano lesson" is BIG but I hope many students can jump with us.. :-)

QUOTE (JamesT @ Feb 11 2010, 04:03 AM) *
I'd like to get into doing backing tracks on keyboard. Lessons like these might be at an easier level. But it would be cool to learn how to do basic chords and smart ways for a keyboard player to use different inversions etc for nice pads & basic rhythm. I hope that this is not too basic for a lesson, but eventually lessons that walked us through basic chord progressions and changes for different styles, the different modes, etc. would be cool. Level 2 or 3 would be good for me cause I could learn a lot about harmony and the "structure" of music even at that level of technical difficulty. I think since I've been playing guitar so long, that I tend to focus on technical aspects to the neglect of more basic music theory. Studying this on keyboard would be a good way for a guitarist to still be able to focus on guitar while improving music theory/harmony knowledge at the same time.

Hello! Your lesson request is absolutely perfect and useful! Thanks for this. This kind of lesson was already in my plan but now I think it will be really one of the next lesson that I'll publish on GMC because it's also what has been required to me from the GMC staff! Your explanation makes really clear what it is needed and gave me great ideas about the lesson's contents. Thanks again, your "wish lesson" is on the way...

Something in the styleof Stratovarius or Rhapsody of fire

Yes let's do it! Jens Johansson is one of my top-favorite keyboardists! We'll analyze some songs from Stratovarius concentrating, of course, on the keyboard job (pads, harpsichord, choirs, solos, ...).

Sounds good? ;-) Thanks for the suggestion!

QUOTE (MickeM @ Feb 10 2010, 09:30 PM) *
I'd like to see something like; 70's organ rock and hard rock rhythm and solo


some distortion for a real dirty sounding rock Hammond wink.gif

Also this is a great lesson request! Thanks! Hammond is one of the greatest rock instruments! I use it a lot on my Metal songs, even if when you don't hear it and... seems a rhytmhic guitar... it is not, it is a tottally distorted hammond sound!!!

Sure, we can build-up our heavy hammond and play with it some heavy riffs!!!

Hello there! Yes, of course the Bach's Fugue in Gm is already inserted in the wish list and it will be soon part of my new lesson!

Thanks for your suggestion, really interesting, I like it!

QUOTE (Emir Hot @ Feb 10 2010, 01:44 PM) *
This fugue is not very "little" smile.gif There is a lot going on here but it's an awesome piece. Maybe maestro could do the part 1 of this. I would also love to learn it. I recognised that Yngwie used many parts from this one on his live solos.

Hi bro, yes you right of course, nothing from Bach is "little", everything is absolutely awesome!!! But yes, this fugue, sometime has been named "Little Fugue" compared to other giant masterworks!!

I'll make a new lesson on this Fugue that I liked and I played during my Conservatory studies on the "Organ", sounds majestic! I'm glad you'll play it as well, and yes, Yngwie played a lot of Bach stuff, always... and from Vivaldi as well... wink.gif

Thanks bro!
