Piano #

The piano is the only instrument I really know how to play; it’s also my favourite. I learnt to play piano formally for about six years (I guess age 7 to 12 or 13). I have spent all the years since then tinkering on it very informally, writing and playing songs based mostly around chords. The extreme self-discipline required to practise and perform “real” classical music eludes me.

Nice songs to play on the piano #

  • Radiohead - Codex
  • Tom Waits - Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis
  • The Whitlams - Buy Now, Pay Later (Charlie No. 2)
  • Adrian Mann’s “Alexander Piano”, the world’s longest. Has some pretty amazing bass sounds.
