Seven Studies – done and dusted and available this month

by Bill on June 2, 2016

The good news is that Seven Studies in Pop Piano is all done bar the shouting. I’m holding off actually releasing it until I’ve got next week out of the way (I’m heading away on holiday, and don’t want to go live immediately before I leave, in case of technical problems) but it’ll be out there very soon. Check out the video for a preview!

Hi Bill
I’m really enjoying you tutorials. Thanks.
I took up piano at age 22 (52 now). I went the classical route but always just wanted to be a good rock, R&B and blues player. It was actually Roy Bittan’s playing that got me started. You’re tutorials have helped a lot to get me away from the written page and begin seeing the shapes and patterns in the keys.
There are other two other areas I’d like to study further and wondered if you could suggest any books or websites that might help: piano orientated, chord progression theory like Freddie Mercury or David Bowie might write (Life of Mars, modulations, interesting chords choices etc.), and piano patterns and rhythms like Thunder Road, for instance.
I appreciate you must be very busy, so many thanks for any feedback, however brief.
Best wishes
Paul

Hi Paul: hmmmmmm, off the top of my head I can’t think of anything specific – it could actually be one for another book, one of these days. I’ll have a think and a look around and let you know if I think of anything! :)

Early next week, Ralph – sorry for the delay! The good news is that the very first version is going to be a free “beta” edition. Basically I’ve had very good feedback from some professionals, but I feel we need some insight from actual users. So the plan is to let the test version of the PDF into the wild for a month or two, then build any feedback in, then release an “official” PDF and a print edition. Video explaining things, plus download link, should be up by Monday – I’m just waiting for a final lot of pro feedback. Thanks for the interest!
