Hey Eric, I’m glad you posted here! I’m hoping some of my other student who have experience playing weddings will comment too, but here are a few all-time favorites:
Schubert’s Ave Maria
Ode To Joy as a recessional
Anybody else have suggestions?RonKeymasterMay 1, 2016 at 4:45 pmPost count: 21RonKeymasterApril 18, 2016 at 8:29 pmPost count: 21RonKeymasterApril 4, 2016 at 12:32 pmPost count: 21RonKeymasterMarch 28, 2016 at 1:18 pmPost count: 21
Great stuff!!! I love those clips in the movies too. Harpo was pretty musical too 🙂
btw, I used to live near their childhood home on E93rd Street in Manhattan. Of course they lived there almost a century earlier but it was fun thinking of them in the neighborhood!RonKeymasterMarch 28, 2016 at 1:14 pmPost count: 21
It’s great you’re getting so much much music to learn at church, Eric. Even though it seems crazy at times having to learn so much in a short time, it’ pays off in the long run. You’ll get quicker at it, and also you’ll already know the pieces when you see them again. Once you play the same Easter hymn for 10 Easters, you know it VERY well!!!RonKeymasterMarch 27, 2016 at 9:03 amPost count: 21
Great version, Mike! But this type of uptempo is organic and actually doesn’t change the vibe (pun!) at all. It just gives a little movement to what she’s already established. The automatic double time is what drives me crazy when it happens all the time!RonKeymasterMarch 27, 2016 at 8:58 amPost count: 21
Thanks for the positive feedback about the new site. And I’m glad people are enjoying the forum; it’s so important to have the support of others who are doing the same things we are.
Keep me posted on the Flowing Water lessons. Any questions, etc. 🙂RonKeymasterMarch 26, 2016 at 5:12 pmPost count: 21RonKeymasterMarch 26, 2016 at 5:10 pmPost count: 21RonKeymasterMarch 26, 2016 at 9:05 amPost count: 21RonKeymasterMarch 26, 2016 at 9:04 amPost count: 21
A lot of the classic rock musicians mention hanging out with Holland. He must have been quite a presence on the British music scene at one point! I think there’s some stuff you him and Charlie Watts playing blues and boogie woogie, but I’m not sure.
You should get a copy of The Real Book, volume 1. It has leadsheets for the most commonly played jazz tunes, including some great ballads.RonKeymasterMarch 25, 2016 at 6:59 pmPost count: 21
I’m excited about seeing the David Bowie tribute concert at Carnegie Hall on March 31:
David Bowie tribute concert to take place at New York’s Carnegie Hall
I didn’t grow up listening to a lot of Bowie, other than the big hits. It’s been eye-opening getting to know more of his output recently! Anyone have a favorite Bowie song or story?
