For Sale !!

This video is a bit different from the others I have posted. Or perhaps it is not … in that case it is the same.

But seriously, folks … Currently, I am working on my album The Poodle Magic Pig Type (working title). As I am financing this project myself, I am now at the point of trying to raise some cash. For my latest album, I started a fundraiser, but after all that was done, I decided I am not doing that anymore. So, I came up with a different idea: I am going to raise money by selling some of the stuff I own. That way, they buyer will actually purchase something, and at the same time contribute to the funding of the album. This is a special one, because the person to buy this item(s) will also get the FIRST album – numbered and signed. So, let it begin! Oh, and there is some piano playing as well …

Four Chords – a tutorial

There are these four chords that everybody has heard (of) … pretty much 60% of western popular music is based on these chords. I will not go into much detail, but I hope to give you some kind of clue about them in this video.

Chords used: Cmaj7 – Am7 – Dm7 – G7

Cmaj7 = C-E-G-B
Am7 = A-C-E-G
Dm7 = D-F-A-C
G7 = G-B-D-F

Enough information to keep you going for hours in a row. And the good thing is … you will just need the white keys. I love white keys. And I love black keys. I love all keys. But in this tutorial, will only need the white ones. Next tutorial, let’s have a go at just the black keys, what do you think?



Today, I received a beautiful message on Twitter on my composition Toets. Since this morning, the track has been playing in my head and so this evening, I let it out and played it. It has been a long time since I played the whole thing – I have played parts of it here and there, but tonight I gave it a try and played it all. Hope you like it.
