Good work Jeffrey!
As you know, there are no shortcuts to learning Bach. I like that you're very relaxed and not showing off :) . Tension = brittle tone. The sustain pedal gives your playing a nice organ touch. Are you working on any other classical pieces now?

Yes, excellent!

I could never manage it on piano, but I used to be able to play it passably on a synth. But it's WAY more fun to play on a real pipe organ...

Great stuff! Any classical piece with a hint of ominous, haunting or scary flavor is a treasure. I love the vision of fog, dampness, rolling hills and an old castle...that is what this piece stirs in me!

Let's just say that Jeffrey didn't get that 25000+ post count while learning to play Bach on the piano . . . :wink:

Well... only 21 posts for me here. But I've easily played 25000+ Bach notes :) .

I did learn to play some Bach on guitar many Kiramoons ago, though. Forgot most of it, though. :(

BTW, I am going to see these guys on Sunday. :D it's been a couple years since seeing them, last time.

I think that I am the best example that practice does not make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect. :lol:
Life, as with music, often requires one to let go of the melody and listen to the rhythm
