No, he was one!

Unlike Gavin and Stacey's 'mates' (Fingers, Dirtbox, Chinese Alan, Budgie etc.etc). He could have had one called Penis. He did have a 'Jesus' though.

In a piano shop in Cardiff today, takes out a piece of paper from my back pocket (which is crammed full of photocopies from CTM1) thinking it was from CTM1 but actually it happened to erroneously be Blaenwern. Showing it to my wife and telling her that I was learning this up until last week...and then going on to play half of the hymn perfectly!

So many things have made me happy today:

1. Playing my whole repertoire on the Library of Birmingham piano (including the half of Blaenwern I know) and getting some attention for it.

2. Going to a free Friday night jazz gig at Symphony Hall foyer next door, the first one this year as I was a regular at last years' ones and miss them something very gruesome

3. Fixing a date of June 1st for starting, after 17 years to come off antidepressants

4. Seeing a teapot with a piano keyboard printed on it (shame it was £60).

Quite. At the shop in Symphony Hall where I picked up a couple of coasters with a sketch of a piano on for £5 each. There's a lovely plain white 4 cup teapot in JL's with a filter in for only £14. Marijuana tea, anyone??

It's only taken me X amount of weeks to learn it but I knew I'd do it solely in my own time. But if it was in two part, I'd have done it within a week!

I've played the right hand part of 'Aberystwyth' from A&M Revised but all those dots are extremely offputting. I mean, how on earth do you follow them all, Gill. You must be a Kryptonite!

Well done that man :) Achievements like that are good for the soul, and the confidence. Obviously the threat of having to learn a two-part arrangement by yours truly was enough to spur you onward!

You obviously had a different teacher to the one I have, however with me, it's a case of when something minor happens then I see it as catastrophic. I am trying not to think that way. You wouldn't believe I had a misfortunate experience with a sight reading (oh christ, I've said it :evil: ) exercise yesterday morning whereas it took me six attempts and still couldn't play it. If that had happened to me, say, three months ago, then all of my sheet music would be down the charity shop later that day. But I kept telling myself it was only a minor blip and reminded myself of what I excel at at the piano, which is playing emotionally and scales - and also looking back at my repertoire which is growing at a considerable rate. And this morning, I did BOTH exercises perfectly, i.e prepare and play perfectly once.

Once I start coming off my antidepressants on June 1st, I will see a huge difference in my concentration ability!!

One can engage in a soupcon of cherry picking with this, or Tippexing out the alto part (if that's the part between treble and bass, I darnow).

No, not yet. I've been trying to perfect my Blaenwern (last few bars) whilst concentrating on the stuff I've got to do for Mabel on Tuesday afternoon as that's next wick. I don't get the metre of that version of Jerusalem. That version I can't even clap along to. Why don't they just put 'and did those....' as rest and three crotchets in 4/4 if it's supposed to be easy?? Hydrofoil looks a goody and it's in a good key, F major so only one black key to worry about.

So next it's Hyfrydol. Should be easy as the first two lines are repeated so that's in fact half the tune sussed. It's the ones that are in keys with more than one sharp or flat that's going to be difficult (nearly all hymns seem to be written in those keys) although one of my homework pieces is in D.

You've just given me an idea for Tuesday. When Mabel lets me in for a lesson, I usually go straight into the piano room after myself and her dog make a huge fuss of each other (she can usually smell cats on me!) whilst she toodles off either into the lounge, kitchen, or upstairs to pray the lord, her soul to keep over the next 30 minutes because Satan's cocktail pianist is here. Whilst I wait, I can see what Blaenwern sounds like on her piano...and see whether she says anything!!

She has a massive Wyvern organ in one of her spare rooms, complete with full pedal board and when I arrive, she's usually playing odd excerpts on there. I've really missed my piano essons for 4 weeks and so glad to be going back next week :piano;

No live news blog, breaking eyewitness up to the minute in yer face rolling news coverage then with live tweets, unknowingly assuming the human race will be actually interested then. Would have been 4 weeks since teach has played in her church also.

Oh, what has made me happy is I've lost weight this week, after a 2 week effort. I still need to lose 5kg before I'm back to what I was on 1st January, so I may not need that abdominal plate of armour then!

Remember, you don't have to do the exam if you don't want to, OHO. After all, playing music is about the fun and self-gratification. It's not about some bloke judging you giving you marks out of 150 whilst you suffer.

No idea what model Kawai she has, apart from the fact it's a baby grand, polished and lacquered and in a mahogany colour. I may have a photo of it somewhere. That said, I wish I had room for a grand in my ex-council terrace! Or even an upright. Playing Mabel's piano is lovely but it feels so much different to mine, and even the battered old upright I practice on when I go to my Keep Fit class on a Tuesday.

Well done, OHO! Can you get your teacher to put you in for your exam at a friendly centre? Round here we hAVE a forbidding chilly church with a daunting grand on a daunting platform, or in another town in the other direction you wait in a cosy front room with squishy sofas and have the exam in a little dining room on a (very good) upright. Makes a difference!

Finding a Naxos of Mozart's complete horn works and concertos in a charity shop for £1 and a CD of 2 piano concerti by the same composer and played/conducted by Barenboim in the same shop for the same price. There was a Deutsche Grammophon of Dvorak cello concerti, and as we all know DG is a top rated classical label with Naxos being midprice. It was £1 but I didn't get it. Would have done if I hadn't already been into B&M Bargains for some weedkiller.

I could easily pop into my local shopping centre tomorrow and get the Dvorak, however it will be my first morning at home tomorrow for a long time and I've got a thing about George Melly to watch on Youtube, as well as a 1966 documentary on 'The Leeds' which was only the second competition.

My garden thermometer touched 20 degrees today and I got ALL my laundry done and dried in the heat, bed covers, towels, jeans, wife's draws, you know the score.....

We've had a rug out drying today; just about to go and test it to see if it's dry enough!
I play for my own amazement... :piano;

It did go quite dark around 3 hours ago here but it stayed warm. It just looked like it was going to bucket down with rain. I had to bring in the last of my towels.

I feel like a bingo playing old chav woman saying that!!!
