Guys, I am terrible at playing the piano.
This is a good thing – because I hate letting myself be terrible at something I want so badly to do well.
I can almost play Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’
ALMOST. It’s pushing my ability to both focus on and play two different things on my hands. MAN I wish I had learned how to play the piano as a kid.
The next song I want to work on is Fur Elise – a song my left hand can play the famous bits to but my right hand has no idea what to do. It might be six months before I really understand how to play it decently well.
In any case, I am happy I’ve stuck to it for a few days – and I still want to play. I am glad I followed my gut.
