So I find myself learning and practicing the piano a lot more all week. It’s a fun instrument to learn once you get into it. I just finally wanted to play something different other than guitar. Playing piano and learning to read music is not that hard. I’ve always loved piano ballads.
Whenever I feel I’m good enough at piano, I’ll start learning some piano covers. There are songs I want to learn like John Lennon’s “Imagine”, Billy Joel’s “Piano Man”, Elton John “Tiny Dancer”, The Commodores “Easy”, The Righteous Brothers “Unchained Melody”, Simon & Garfunkel “Bridge Over Troubled Water”, Ben Folds “Brick”, Evanescence “My Immortal” and many others. Those are some of my favorite piano songs and I want to learn them.
I would love to get an upright piano or a grand piano but there’s no room for either of those so I guess I’m stuck with electric keyboards/pianos. I just love the sound of the piano and want to play that music myself. I will also write original piano ballads myself which is something I’ve always wanted to do.
Another reason I wanted to get into piano/keyboard playing is so I can have the skills to learn MIDI controllers ’cause a lot of MIDI controllers have keys on them and I need to learn how to do that stuff. When I write original rock songs through DAW software, I would like to add in all kinds of instruments like strings, brass and other kinds of cool sounds.
Piano/keyboards is a pretty cool instrument. As long as you are pretty good at guitar and have been playing for a long time, you should already have plenty of music knowledge to get good at piano fast. That’s what happening with me when I learn piano. I’m already learning things quickly. I could get really good at piano in about a year or so. I just gotta stick with it and I will.
