    Boogie Ditty

    After much too long, I've finally added another video performance to my resume....

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MN4pvqoqz0

    After 10 tries, I gave up trying to get a completely error free version... If I play this every day for a year, I might actually get it up to the teacher's intended speed.

    Well done, eblues. It's all about enjoying it, and you seem to be doing that.
    Mistakes? Phooey... I just play right though 'em like they didn't happen.
    Keep up the good work, sir.

    You got it. I thought that was the one you were working on from your previous descriptions. Nice little arrangement you came up with. That is a nice Boogie pattern. I also learned that one from the video from Terry Miles. That guy really knows his boogie. Since you have been also working on Fur Elise you can do a "Roll Over Beethoven" kind of thing like Jerry Lee Lewis.

    Thanks for checking out the video and for the kind words, guys.

    Roger, I've been documenting my musical projects as a hobby for about the last 5 years, first on guitar, and the last couple of years on vintage organs... and yes, it a fun, albeit slow moving hobby.


    Erock, I was quite pleased to successfully arrange a couple of additional verses to add to that boogie lesson and turn into a short but interesting ditty.

    My song count is now up to 6, and when I get Fur Elise down, it will be lucky number 7. Yeah, only 7 songs in over two years, but it is certainly an eclectic playlist.

    Have a close listen to Led Zeppelin II. It's one of my favourite albums, and it's riddled with mistakes. That's actually part of its appeal - mistakes happen with live performance, and to a great extent, that's what that album was.

    Well, it's a good thing mistakes are not a deal breaker, cause I make plenty of them...
