Yes, Ned Gerhard's pieces do have an easy charm. They are very well written with catchy tunes and inventive endings.
Yes, all of the pieces that I have heard you play on here I have enjoyed. I only wish the ned gerhart business was still open. I emailed him but he said the business is over.
Must be nice to play on such a good instrument ! Fancy sitting down to record with your cell phone switched on
Right, it's not every day you get to play on a full grand! I think next time I should just leave my cell phone behind at home to be safe!
Not bad played but rather too slow, and you need to swing a bit more freely.
Yes, I noticed on one piece there are swing style eighth notes. I got a trial version when the site was still up from a piece called walking in the dark. but just the audio not the score but i remember how it was marked.
Why did you not ask for the score ? I don't have it electronically but would have scanned it for you.
NOW you tell me!
Thanks for the offer. There are so many pieces of Ned's i'd like to play. It seems for this set there are pieces I simply like less than others, but they are all good. If you could scan me singing again! that would be fun to play
But I really shouldn't play any more right now because before I make any other recordings I promised Andreas I would record his sonata in full (and before that, transcribe it to composing program from his extremely hard to read handwritten score!). Unfortunately, I don't have access to my quality mic or recorder.. it will probably be a while before I can start making good audio quality recordings again.
I like the USB plugin page turner pedals. Much cheaper than Bluetooth. The one I have cost under $50 and has a cord that's plenty long enough to reach from any piano or music stand to the floor.
That helps a lot, thanks! 50 dollars isn't much. I've got a USB port on the left side of my laptop so I would probably just plug it in and use my left foot to do the job.
It's starting to go on the fritz during hot humid weather a bit, but it's given me over 3 years of good use for under $50 and I am always wadding it up and shoving it in and out of bags, so I can't exactly complain.
Wow. It sounds like a piano--affected by humidity as well! I imagine in 10 years they will be producing digital pianos that have everything built in, a score reader, a page turner, and of course, everything that they have now.
