Practice Makes Perfect...Sort Of

I have been continuing to practice Heart and Soul. I am slowly getting better but am still far from being the next Elton John or Stevie Wonder. I am really struggling with my hand/finger placement. It just feels very awkward and uncomfortable. For some reason my thumbs never want anything to do with this process. I am working on this though and it is slowly becoming easier. I suppose the more that I practice the better I will become. At least thats what I've been told. I guess I will find out.

On a side note I promised to tell you a song that I would ideally like to learn to play so I thought of a good one that I would like to play: Beth by Kiss. As some of you may know I am a die hard Kiss fan and that is my main reason behind choosing this song. It is probably the song that would sound best on piano. I am not sure if I will be able to play this because I showed it to Shaun and he tried to play it and had a little bit of trouble. We will find out late though.


  1. Maybe try learning a scale or two if you haven't already. That'll help with with your hand/finger placement.

  2. I know that way back when I played it was a pain to always remeber finger placement, so don't be made. I know tons of people that kind of play that mess up becuase they can't get pro[per placement either. But I am super proud that you're trying!!

  3. Thanks Rochelle I will definitely try that.
