    I'm fairly new to the piano as well, but I quite like the 'Pianote' YouTube channel for lessons.
    The instructors aren't obnoxious (so far) and everything is very clearly explained.

    Seemed like some decent basic lessons once I found the playlist for them. A random video came up after I left the room for some time and was watching something else and it seemed pretty good. Was on chords and showed how you can play the notes individually and make a song. Coming from playing guitar I really appreciated that because beinf able to do my own thing kept me learning

    I've found many of the lessons really useful for explaining general music theory stuff that seemed really abstract to a guitar player.

    For example, the concept of chord inversions.
    On a guitar fretboard, it's really hard for me to visualise - but when they explained it on a piano it made perfect sense!

    Still want to make a harry potter themed bluegrass band called Banjo and the deathly hallows.

    @Jeedan — Teledildonicss is my shit. Really great riff executed at a pleasing tempo to just zone out with. Reminds me a lot of Boris' Flood, but less "sludgey" I guess. The added synth accoutrement at the end has me imagining this transitioning into something like a spacey post-hardcore elaboration of that same riff, kinda similar to what Gloe have been trying to do for a few years:
    *video*

    I have another piece in my giant tapestry of cursed ambient "jazz":
    *soundcloud*
    This track is the starting point, hence the initial invocation, which was my attempt at taking inspiration from the classic Dolby theatrical opening, as well as doing my best to reference the opening to Coltrane's Ascension. One of the curious aspects of working in a pure digital environment is how you sometimes have to make compositional adjustments to accommodate unforeseen behaviors of the DWS. In this case, every attempt at exporting this track kept coming out broken because some aspect of the exporter required a bit of "start-up" in order to recognize various automation tracks; as such, the track fades in on some reverse reverb in order to properly trigger all the automation present in the track.
    The actual body of the song isn't quite finished, as I'm constantly fiddling with how the songs intersect, but I thought I'd post this to try and get some feedback. Previous listeners have described it as "too slow", "fucking awful", and "why is the piano out of tune?".
    As with the previously posted track (Edge of an Ocean), a lot of this music I've been working on for 2+ years is developing out of experiments with treated piano and learning how to use some of the fancy vocal synths introduced in Reason 10. That said, it is "conceptually" grounded in recurring dreams I had after my dad died, all of which offered some variation of walking along a beach and watching him drown; so much of it is mournful, melancholic, dirgelike and the structural ebb & flow and slightly chaotic harmonic expression are reflections of those dreams.

    Just wanted to say I really enjoyed that.

    Haven't recorded anything in well over a year, was able to make some time in December to record this.

    I actually wrote this song back in 1983, so I guess I was around 14. I originally recorded a simplified version on a crappy 4 track Tascam, but that what was available at the time. This re-record I did in Reason. One of these days I'd like to seriously learn how to do proper mixing, mastering, and compression. In the meantime, this is the result:



    Hope you like it.

    Re-recorded another sing I originally wrote around 30 years ago. This song actually appeared in a Tetris clone called Tetris Max in the early 90s. It enjoyed some success before the Tetris company (or whomever owned the rights to Tetris) shut down the game.

    Anyway, here's the new version of the song, I hope you like it.
