Post The Challenge -Week 2
Thats 2 weeks down. Wrapped Around Your Finger from week 1 is much better now. This week has been Greg Howards "Time after Time " video lesson on Youtube. I really like what he's done here, a lot of effort to offer a great lesson and insight into playing this tune , which I really like. Its a lush sounding arrangement and he's forced me to revisit some fingerings and things I might not normally do, with plenty of good advice along the way. Grateful :D
I've pretty much got all the parts down, but it needs smoothing out, pretty happy though to have got that far in the week. I'm missing the grand, playing it on the Alto has meant its not quite the same as his, but all the elements are there. Its straight to the big stick with this one when I get home. I think week 3 will be Stevie Wonder...........out ( from the remote Indian Ocean, near the Australian coast) ,

Bruce,

I'm so glad this video is still doing it for you. It took a long time to make, so that's very rewarding to hear. Cheers!
