A little help with making something black
#21
Smile

I am actively looking for a group, but unless something unexpected comes along, I want to be able to sight read at least simple music before getting in a group.

At this point, I am pretty much learning a few bars a day and working my way up to complete simple pieces. I spend maybe 1/2 my time on scales and long slow bows trying to get bow changes and string changes smoothed out. The other half I play simple songs like Ode To Joy, etc.

My wife unit plays piano, and when I can actually play (not well, just most of the right note (intonation later) she and I will be playing together also. I am building a collection of sheet music from various sources, and inputting the ones we will be interested in, into a app for our iPads which turns the pages as we play, and plays all or none of the parts. That way we can practice along with the iPad playing the other part, and together with the iPads just turning pages for us.
I am not a Medical professional and I don't play one on the internet.

That cool ! My bride of 44 years is also a pianist, I actually met her jamming @ at rockabilly sock hop in high school. She was trying to pick out the blues rift at the beginning of Jonny B Goode by ear.

Since you have the wife unit playing the keys, you might want to try to practice a little by ear. You won't know if you can until you try. People typically play by reading notation, or by ear. The best musician's do both.

I went to a Billy Joel concert once where he said "sometimes the sheet music is just plain wrong"
