Guitar was more my thing, but I've tried to expand.

I can butcher a mean harmonica too. :wink:

If I had the time I'd be playing guitar & bass better, plus lap steel, square neck dobro, dulcimer, samisen, mandolin, piano, harmonica, and a variety of guitar like instruments.

Good blues piano lessons online here: http://www.playpianotoday.com/blues/index5.swf


Sorry, if I shouldn't be bringing back an old thread like this, but it is still high up on the list on the piano page.
I've always enjoyed listening to blues piano, and now that I've inherited one--nothing special, but a piano just the same, I want to try playing it myself. I did take some lessons as a kid, and have dabbled with keyboard instruments over the years. I remember the theory, but will need to work on the technique a bit.

The piano has had time to get acclimated to my place, and the next step is the tuner, then I'll be checking out my old piano books, some piano books from the library, and that link--which is still active, and then I'll see if I need to buy anything or not.

Thanks for the link.

I just hope my guitars forgive me for seeing another instrument. :wink:

i here ya. sometimes, though, somebody can just drop a trick on you thats like, so simpleand taes your playing to another level.

those are good.
That's a good point.... that's another reason why it's helpful when you can watch guys do stuff. One of the issues I have is that there's different things you can do depending on whether you're playing alone,or playing with a band. I've never gigged on piano alone (except for solo ballads that I've written) ,but I work on tunes alone at home alot. There are things you can do with two hands on the upper registers when you're playing with a band that you can't do when you're playing alone and trying to supply the bottom with you're left hand. Chord voicings are critical too, and different voicings are important to know when you're moving thru different phrases of the music. Some chord voices put your hands in positions that are difficult to transition out of,especially if you're moving to a riff that requires a crossover during the riff. You may have to start the next riff with the wrong fingers if you don't take the preceding chord voicing into consideration.
