Use ONE WORD to describe the piece you're working on Now

Post by Rick Beauregard » Mon Feb 05, 2018 6:25 pm

To describe the feel, your vision, not technical.

I'll start:

MELANCHOLIC
All this time I thought I was making music; it was making me.

1980 Dauphin D30
1962 Fender pre-CBS P-Bass
National Triolian Uke ca.1930
Almost as many fly rods as guitars

Of course. By the way the reason I ask is to come up with a list of descriptors to apply the things I’m learning. I read this suggestion in the book “Play the Piano for Pleasure”. When you are analyzing a piece to improve memory, start by describing the piece using one word. Is it melodic? Questioning? Rhapsodic? Flowing? Etc.
