I continue to learn the Summer Knows of Michel Legrand but I have arranged it in my own mood.
I found a magnificent piano arrangement of Private Investigations by Dire Straits on the “Satin Beaus” Youtube channel. As he made available the tutorial and the score, I’m trying to learn it.
A typical piece where the interpretation is very important to bring out the melody of his accompaniment.
Study in progress based on a score written by Elie Drai
Eté 42 – Summer Knows (Summer of 42) – Michel Legrand
Exercise for a harmony class, improvisation of an accompaniment. Still a lot of hesitation but it starts to come naturally.
To please a very dear friend, a simple little piece learned by ear in less than an hour
Here I am already in my 6th week of work on this piece. It starts to take shape little by little. The deciphering until the end is finished, remains to continue to train. 6 weeks ago, I never thought I could get there. I am really motivated!
The right hand was relatively easy to manage, but now the hardest part is to synchronise the 2 hands.
I feel that I will have to work for hours, weeks and months on this piece, It’s far to be done.
After a big week of work, the left hand is more or less managed and I start to work the right hand.
After the corrections made by my piano teacher on my week work, I have to continue to practice the left hand but slowly, with more precision and a better hand position. My position was completely wrong and it was the cause of my pain. Now I’m going better, I don’t feel the pain anymore and my game is is better.
