Misuse of the word transpose. Piano player is changing chords. Transposing Music means to rewrite piece of music to a different key signature.

I can do all of it. But when i try to play it both hand sucks. My bass hand is being distracted because of my right hand is doing a different fill. But i can do the bass pattern with left hand and right hand together but when i try to do a different one even just a 1&2 count it sucks does this mean i have to quit piano? That its not for me?
Arthur Migliazza (5 days ago)
It takes some people weeks of diligent practice (1 hour a day) before they can do the "hand independence exercise" as I have shown here in the video. But make sure you can do that before you move on to the licks. The first lick may take a few more weeks after that. Don't give up
destinylopezYT (5 days ago)
#zeus i’m not sure if that’s true. i think you just need practice
#zeus (5 days ago)
destinylopezYT my brain is just focusing on one rythm i think only few people can do this stuff. Those people with a functioning left brain.
destinylopezYT (5 days ago)
#zeus definitely do not quit piano. you just need to practice hand independence. practice easier songs that give you practice so that both your hands are playing different tempos and rhythms.

What scale is this in?
Sierra (5 days ago)
@Arthur Migliazza ok thanks
Arthur Migliazza (5 days ago)
A 12 bar blues has three chords, each with its own key signature. In this video you are using a C7 chord (from the F major scale), F7 (from Bb major), G7 (from C major)

the owner of youtube is not something that classical music and lullabies are not even aware. обладатель youtube не то что традиционную музыку а даже колыбельную не осознает. in General, for him, music is pornography without video. вообщем для него музыка это порнуха без видео. to the visitor of the site during viewing of music files it with special perversion offers viewing of advertizing(it personally for me "the real pornography") гостю веб-сайта во пора просмотра музыкальных файлов он с особенным извращением предлагает просмотр рекламы(это лично для меня "истинной порнухи")

Great vid. Actually one of the clearest and easiest piano tutorials I've seen. I mean I still can't play it, but the keys you were playing were clearly displayed and the speed of the vid was good. This will take me a while though. I think I will have to have a few drinks or something to make me loosen up before I try this. LOL.

De Ath (19 days ago)
Omg 😮 😯 😲 from drummer to pianist now I want to buy one..can A cheap piano 🎹 help to learn basic ?
Arthur Migliazza (5 days ago)
Yes absolutely. Just make sure it has weighted keys. It is nearly impossible to play this style on a keyboard with unweighted keys. And make sure it has 88 keys as well. Then it will last a you a while, as you grow and learn more. Expect $300-$400 to get something new. You maybe be able to find something used for less.
Stopclock64 (17 days ago)
De Ath you don’t need some fancy keyboard to start learnin. Now the sound won’t be amazing but you can learn the basics and then when you get better you can buy a better keyboard. That way as you start if you stop playing or something you haven’t invested to much money into it

Fabrice Steurer (20 days ago)
I play piano but i cant split the left and right hand. Any tipps to for practice?
Arthur Migliazza (5 days ago)
Play the left hand by itself for a week or so. Then add a chord in the right hand in whole notes, as shown in the hand independence section. Stick with that until you can do it. Then try the right hand in half notes, etc .... use the same sequence as shown in the hand independence part. Take your time with each rhythm. Don't try the licks until you can do all the rhythms with the right hand.

Aaron Roman (25 days ago)
is the part at 4:50 one of the variations the video shows? I got most of this down, but my brain can't figure out that whole part. I've never played piano really, but I've spent hours learning this, so good. EDIT: Just kidding, i don't know how I missed that part, but I found it! Thanks again for this video!
Arthur Migliazza (5 days ago)
Awesome, glad you figured it out. Thanks Aaron

#1 I want to thank you, I never played on piano before, but i was so hooked up by sound of boogie that I start to learn myself, without any previous experience. I learned basic chords and play my favorit songs (just simple chords with singing), but I promise myself that I will learn boogie and I stayed every evening after school that I could access piano and learn from this video how to play boogie, and after month of learning I can play something similar what you show on video, I think… I dont think I understand and "can play on piano", but fact that I can play something similar to this make me happy, and I will try to improve it. 2# I try to understand this 4:40 transcript, does any have any advice? Or explanation, specially i don´t understand how is played 4:53 and how is it shown in transcript.
Arthur Migliazza (5 days ago)
Thank you I'm glad this video is helping! For the 4:40 and 4:53 it is the same thing demonstrated earlier, but just following the chords of the 12 bar blues. In the transcript I = C, IV = F, V = G. So you must play the lick in the right timing according to the chord changes.

I could be wrong, but at 5:20 he uses an Cdim7, could you not also use an 3rd inversion F7? Maybe to give it a brighter feel?
Arthur Migliazza (5 days ago)
Yes, you are free to do whatever sounds best to you! That's one of the great things about this style. Totally customizable.

Is it bad that with hand independents I am playing like this comes at the same time with that note? because it works but I don’t if I’m really getting hand independents.
Arthur Migliazza (5 days ago)
That's not really hand independence but maybe for you it can be an intermediary step. You can easily keep testing yourself for hand independence by doing things slightly different with your right hand and seeing if your left hand messes up. Its best to make hand independence your goal, though. Or else you run the risk of being locked into one way of playing and getting lost if you make a mistake.
