Topic: "Prelude In Bb"

    "Prelude In Bb"

    Edit: I have never been happy with this. I am taking the advice of David, Ron and Randy and re-writing it for banjo and guitar. My thanks to you three. You are all more perceptive that this old man.

    Larry


    Music Lovers,

    This is my just-completed "Prelude In Bb" for GPO harpsichord.

    It is technically difficult but certainly playable.

    Regards,

    Larry

    Mr. Larry!

    This is fast! Very Fast!! (Except during the slow section.) AND I LOVE IT!!

    Of course. . . I can't imagine myself playing this piece. It's beyond my very, very modest playing capabilities. But I bet it would be a wonderful and enjoyable challenge for someone with the "chops" to play it!

    Thanks for sharing another fun and well-written piece!

    Thanks largely, Mr. Theodore. You could probably play this with your bare feet. Don't be so modest.

    Pre-shade it for the good words.

    My best to you to infinity and beyond,

    Some of those licks are a little quick, certainly, Larry;
    but not overly demanding... they fall well under the
    hand, some but not a lot of awkward finger crossing.
    If parts like that are "engineered" well, and you're
    usually paying attention, they sound much more testy
    than they really are.

    Have you considered this for a banjo? It seems it
    might be quite at home there, parts of it.

    My best,

    Hi, Larry

    Virtually pure musical mathematics unwinding under the guidance of a workman-like craftsman. Enjoyable - and I like David's idea of having a Banjo (or two) try it out.

    Mr Larry,

    Nice piece. Beyond my modest capabilities as well, but it certainly sounds playable.

    I also like the idea of this with a couple of banjos and a guitar for bass.

    Well done

    Hey, that was fun to listen to. It was like riding a roller coaster.

    I won't say anything about that other instrument but maybe it would also work as a virtuoso trumpet piece like flight of the bumble bee.

    Re: "Prelude In Bb"

    Larry:

    I've heard from some very good pianists that they don't really care for the key of Bb, something about the way it lays under the fingers (or doesn't lay.) I bet this would be just as successful in the key of A. Another bit of freindly advice, which of course, can be totally ignored, is for you to not go into the road map business. Just when I think you're leading me somewhere, you throw in a curve and get me completely off track.
    What a fun piece!
