I decided to do the first raffle. I said I would do it on the 20th, but then I thought: why not do TWO? So I am doing just that. There will be another raffle on the 20th, as promised, so this is an EXTRA one. I just didn’t want to wait anymore. I will explain in the video 🙂 Everyone who has subscribed to my channel (and has their ‘subscriptions set to public’ at this moment is in it. For the next raffle (January 20th), I will include everybody who has subscribed so far (and all new subscribers – I will manually keep track of new subscribers from now on, so you don’t need to set your settings to public. So, without further ado … here it is. And … we have a winner! There is also a solo piano piece at the end, wherein I fucked up twice (playing an F, instead of an F sharp) – I could have redone it, but I didn’t. Please forgive me.
The first video of 2018 didn’t really go as planned. I even had to VIDEO EDIT !! Something I 1: don’t like and 2: don’t have any idea how to do, so when I try it’s only all too obvious. Why did I do it, then? Well, simply because my phone ran out of juice and I had to charge it before I could hang it on the ceiling again.
That said … here’s Milk. And somethings else.
In a festive mood. Kinda too dark, but hey … that’s how it is. There’s festive lights and all. Happy 2018, everybody !!!
This is my first (and most likely last) one-minute video. For this unique event, I decided to play the two keyboard (synth) licks of Frank Zappa’s Peaches en Regalia. Without retakes, editing or trickery. It’s a small miracle. Although it’s very short, I am happy I succeeded. Not perfect, but I’d like to share it. So here goes 🙂
Tonight, I am no longer not happy. As you can witness in this video. Actually, I am quite happy, because I have been (ignoring Frank Zappa’s advice), drinking yellow snow.
But not alone that … I was touched by your warm and ever so kind words. And yes … I say thank you. In this video, I rattle the keys on the chords of Autumn Leaves.
Not all my rattling is spot on, sorry for that, but hey … it came from the heart. It really did.
Tonight, I was not happy, for reasons that would make me happier if I’d share them with you. Instead, I did my best to play something that fitted my mood.
Feel free to skip this video. But also, feel free to indulge in my sadness. Perhaps tonight we can share our unhappiness. Divide it, in two. So we’ll both be half as unhappy as we were before this video.
I have no idea where I am going with this. So, without further ado. Here goes. Nothing.
Another evening, Saturday evening this time, in The Yellow Hippo Studios. This time, I will teach you how to play my own composition For Piano, a tune that I composed when I was in Châteaudun, France.
Maybe I should have named the track Pour Piano, but I didn’t, so it’s called For Piano. It’s on my album Orange (which is on Spotify).
Please enjoy. Or not, of course.
Friday evening … a wonderful evening. Especially ’round Christmas time. We all love our Christmas time. And Friday evenings. So, what is better than a Friday evening ’round Christmas time? That’s what I mean.
Merry Christmas, boys and girls!
This here is a solo piano rendition of Frank Zappa’s Watermelon In Easter Hay. It was a dark, yet cosy Tuesday night. Please don’t hold it against me. Recorded on September 13th, 2017 in the ever so famous Yellow Hippo Studios.
My name is Fred Händl, welcome once again boys and girls.
Another fresh tutorial for your entertainment. Don’t miss out and watch the whole thing. It’s only like half an hour of your life. It might even make you smile, or want to pick up playing piano. So far for the talk. Subscribe to my channel and be the first to be notified when more ridiculous videos are posted. Or don’t subscribe and have a calmer life, without even more ridiculous videos being posted. Tonight’s video contains a new tune, some piano playing, me forgetting to close the door (and my beer!), a little dance, a little musical surprise and a tutorial on how to play Blue in Green with only the pinky of your left hand (and your right hand … ) As you can tell from this description … another well-organised evening full of wonderment.
