Music to Tide You Over

Podcasting Notes
In case you're wondering why I haven't posted any new music for a while - I've been teaching myself to play piano again.

I took years of lessons as a lad, but then switched to guitar at age 13. Those piano memories are deep in there somewhere!

What I do is, I get into a groove with some basic chords. Then, I kind of let my hands go and get into 'trouble' as they do right here in this track. Then the challenge is to get back into key. It's like Games for Song.

I used GarageBand and my old Clavinova (plus Jam Pack 4 to get that Grand Piano sound - not bad, not bad).

Consider it an experiment for the purposes of podcasting (send feedback). Once again, the PowerBook mic recorded my little guitar just fine. Total: about 4 hours of work, over four nights - something to tide us over.
