D# is my favorite note...

I've always loved playing keys and piano, but never had the discipline to get "properly trained" or practice sufficiently, or learn to write and read music. I just always end up noodling and improvising...I'd like to arrange and produce music by cutting and looping my own recordings, but never can muster the patience to do it. I'd like to play in a band, but could never stick with that either. Got recently diagnosed with ADHD which explains a lot, and I'm hoping this will all change soon. In the meantime this is just a single cut of me today playing some riffs I'd like to incorporate in a bigger song, and improvising somewhat on an heirloom Baldwin Piano.

Roll on, aydeejones. This
is awesome - I love it exactly how it is and wish I had access to more piano music that sounded like this. Nice one.

My office has a thin wall, and the classroom next door has a piano in it. I hear many a student noodler, and this has much more personality to it. I would be very happy if you staked out that piano and played so that the Billy Joel wanna-bes couldn't chug away.

This makes me want to watch an old silent movie with this as the soundtrack. Buster Keaton, or something. That one repeated note is when he's running!

Nice recording quality, too.
