@220611, “Tenderly in C” by Walter Gross, Jazz Ballad
I joined the PianoGroove group 2 weeks ago and at last I’d like to introduce myself.
I waited a bit because I wanted to learn a new tune “Tenderly” as this tune was the reason I’m actually here, link below the post.
I found PianoGrove channel while viewing different tutorials on YouTube and I liked Hayden’s way of teaching jazz.
I’m pretty newbie for piano and especially for jazz piano playing.
I’m 59 y.o. medical doctor from Poland.
I graduated from medical school in 1988 so it’s already 34 years since I’ve been working as a radiologist, now in my own private clinic.
Nine month ago I came up with the idea to start playing piano, so joined a few piano teaching groups for basics, but mostly I tried to follow YouTube piano jazz players.
Tony Winston was my favorite piano teacher on YouTube.
I also joined the Piano With Jonny group, not too jazzy for my needs and lastly even Open Jazz Studio but needed something different and suppose I found it here:grinning:
In my school years I played guitar with simple chords, and occasionally piano with the melody line in the right hand and sometimes some basic chords in the left one, of course, if the piano was somewhere available (Poland wasn’t then on the right side of the iron curtain, so people were rather poor and the piano wasn’t available for the average family).
I never learnt how to play any instrument with a teacher. Everything I played was played by ear.
Then more then 40 years long break from playing.
Now I’m able to read notes, but not too much, rather treble clef and very hardly bass clef.
Lead sheets if available are also ok for me to learn a melody, but still need to transpose the music to basic keys.
So enjoy my music and have a good weekend.
