Hello… Well here it is at 100 bpm. This is an abbreviated arrangement of linear melodic motion and harmonic motion presented in Unit 5. I’m working on a longer arrangement but for posting here I wanted to try and keep it about 1 min. 120 bpm is calling… Practice, Practice, Practice….
Having fun, having fun, having fun

Nice work Michael…really good stuff, especially the Time and the Dynamics at the end. RonaldOn July 8, 2019 at 10:52 pm by Michael O’Meagher
Thank you. I appreciate your comment. I think I should start watching for your videos. You have some interesting takes on learning to play piano. You are giving me some ideas to consider. Actually I’m working on one now. I want to create a log of improvisation licks and learn them and then be able to add them as needed.
Have to go. Limited on time and I want to get some practice in.
You take care: MkOn July 13, 2019 at 11:19 pm by Thomas LaCroix
Hi Michael. Sorry I am late to the party. The playing is nice. It looks like you are using an old iPod (I have one too) a camcorder and a iPhone. The piano sounds really nice. I was wondering if you recorded the sound through the camcorder also. If the case can you let me know which one you have.On July 26, 2019 at 11:04 pm by Michael O’Meagher

Thank you… I’m now beginning the Intermediate SPJ Course. So far it is pretty cool. I’m going to work on unit 2 in a few minutes. It is finally starting to warm up here. We live on Willapa Bay in the Pacific NW, USA… It is nice to have sunshine…

Hi Thomas.. I just saw your comment. Sorry for not getting back sooner. I have had a time recording. I was using the computer to play the backing track and I ran into latency issues where the backing track was not in sync with the video. So I had to make some changes. Michele suggested using a external MP3 player. I’m using a Logitech Web Camera mounted on a Photo Tripod. Yes, I’m using an OLD iPod and a BOSE speaker. I created the backing track using Band In a Box. Then I made a MP3 music file and transferred it to the iPod. It took me some time to figure that out. I am using the Windows 10 Platform. I had issues with the placement of the BOSE Speaker and balancing the sound quality of the piano. I used the microphone in the Logitech Camera to record sound. It has been a LONG process refining the quality of the video. I use the Windows “Movies & TV” to trim the video. I have a video editing app but I had issues with it also. Simple seems to work for now. I tried using my cell phone camera but transferring the MP4 file was complicated. Anyway. With the video issue almost resolved the goal is spend more time playing piano. 🙂 Mk
