Hemorrhage (In My Hands)

First of all, let me apologise to all you eager readers who thought this was a post about how I got assaulted and am currently bleeding into my hands.


No, the title of this post is in reference to the song of the same name by Fuel, which in fact was the first song I attempted to play on the piano after a six year hiatus from the keyboard. Due to the monotony of music exams and a general dislike of all music teachers on this planet, I had developed such an aversion to the piano that I had never touched it after my last music exam back in 2000, despite my parents persistent insistence. However, one day back in 2006, complete and utter boredom made me meddle around for a bit, and suddenly I realised that playing by ear is a lot easier and a whole lot more fun than playing Bach, Beethoven and Brusselsprouts.


I know that playing a rock song on the piano is a bit - lame; but it's one of my favourite songs, so I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed playing it.


Cheers!

Oooh, very nice rendition! I actually like toned-down versions of rock songs. They tend to have very meaningful lyrics that are too often hidden by the guitar and drums.

*applause*

Baby Z said...

Wow, you play well.

Baby Z said...

You play well, but I'm not a big fan of rock music, I prefer hip hop and R&B. I usually listen to DMX, Biggie Smalls, Busta, Lil Wayne, Papoose, and Mary J. Blige. My husband can also rap well, he's got an American-Spanish-Sri Lankan accent all rolled into one and he talks fast, so sometimes people can't understand a word he says even if he's speaking plain English. But when he uses street slang and ebonics, it's damn near impossible,even for me.
